Moeller Marine Products DuraMax 14-Gallon Wheeled Fuel Transfer Tank
This is strictly a gravity proposition. If you can't get this fuel tank higher than your fuel tank, don't buy this product. The wheels are too small for the tank when filled so it drags as much as rolls. The fuel drains very very slow. Add one extra very slow to my last. The nozzle handle must be held the whole time the gasoline is draining, five minutes or more. The tank stops draining with more than a gallon of fuel left. The nozzle broke off after 2 months use and so the entire tank is useless unless I can get it replaced. Haven't tried yet. The product is overpriced by $100. I gave it one star because there isn't a lower review rating.

Serves purpose, but does so slowly
The 14-gallon wheeled fuel transfer tank does serves its purpose, but the fuel seems to flow very slowly. I have only used it once. The transfer tank was about 4ft above my boat, all the valves were open, and I removed the top from the opening. Still, the fuel flowed extremely slow. Maybe the line itself is too small and/ or the valves also. I plan to look into modifications if I cannot get a more consistent flow. The tank does provide convenience with getting your fuel to your destination, but patience will be NEEDED when refueling takes place.

Easier than dumping two six's
It is slow flowing. Lock on the pump handle is a pain, it doesn't hold it open like a real nozzle, I holds it shut. You could stick something in it like the old gas cap trick at the old pumps when self service first came out.
Was able to start draft after two pumps.
No matter what it is still easier than trying to hold a 5 or 6 gal can with a plastic self vent nozzle and maybe just as fast as those new slow flow cans you can buy.
Bigger wheels would be nice, but you get what you pay for.

I use this tank for filling up a boat (with a permanent tank) in a boat house. I sit this tank up on the pier and let it gravity feed/syphon into the boat. A couple of squeezes on the pump handle to get it going and it flows out pretty good. A lot easier than trying to dump 5 gal gas cans in...
