Although this is not an ES, you could drive this one in to pump petrol... 20,000 litres? one time enough leow... then slowly dispense into your ES whenever needed...

By the time you used up the 20,000 litres, quarter of it will be wasted by evaporation.

Not many will run empty a full tank in one day, except taxi drivers and a few of us. Laughing

I enjoy reading this thread. Instead of trying to pump more petrol in a tank. Why don't people try a better driving and get more mileage out of the petrol?

IMHO, one should let the petrol work harder for you and not you work harder for the petrol.

Just sharing another point of view
