Let’s face it, when the opportunity to work smarter and not harder presents itself, most of us jump at it. Saving both time and energy in today’s business world and our personal lives means being able to get more done faster, which is why we use electric fuel pumps for a few of our portable gas trailer models. They make fueling equipment, aircraft, and other vehicles that much easier.
Electric Fuel Pumps vs Manual Fuel Pumps
There is one main difference between electric fuel pumps compared to manual pumps and that is, you don’t have to do any work when it comes to fueling with electric pumps. Basically, they work just like the fuel pump you use at a gas station. When you use the nozzle to pump the fuel you need, the fuel flows almost immediately when you squeeze the handle since the electric pump gets the fuel flowing without you having to do anything. This isn’t the case with a manual fuel pump that requires you to actually do the pumping to get the fuel flowing.
Why Electric Fuel Pumps Make Fueling Easier
There are a couple of reasons why an electric fuel pump makes fueling easier than a manual pump. The first reason was already touched on and that’s how you don’t have to do any of the work to actually pump the fuel you need. This is a big advantage because you can save your energy to do more important tasks, like finishing projects, heavy lifting, and so on. A second reason why electric fuel pumps make fueling easier is that they allow you to save time. Even though pumping gas manually can be pretty quick, it’s even quicker with an electric model. By saving time, you can finish fueling faster to again focus on more important tasks like operating your equipment. And finally, a third reason why electric fuel pumps help ease the fueling process is require much maintenance. Essentially, you use it to pump fuel and don’t have to worry about it breaking down.
Gas Trailer Models With Electric Fuel Pumps
We manufacture a couple of models that are built with electric fuel pumps, which would be a good fit for using in commercial, industrial, agricultural, and private settings. They include:
- Contractor 110 Deluxe: This fuel trailer has a 15 Gallon Per Minute or GPM pump.
- Pro 110 Industrial: This model has an aviation rated 15 GPM pump.
- Pro 110 Industrial FTS: This unit has a 25 GPM aviation rated pump and Fuel Transfer System.
Other Gas Trailer Options Without Electric Fuel Pumps
If you don’t feel that you need a gas trailer that has an electric pump and instead, still want to go with a manual version, no problem. The manual pumps we install are still dual-flow, quality built components that will flow at a half a gallon per stroke. With these models, we build a few Manual options such as:
- Contractor 110 Manual: Includes the dual flow manual pump and has a 110 gallon of fuel tank.
- Contractor 55 Manual: Packs the same dual flow hand pump with a 55 gallon fuel tank.
- Traveler 20 Manual: Built with our manual pump, 20 gallon tank, and enclosed storage space.
