I currently use a 5 gallon gas can to refuel my tractor. I usually spill as much as I get in the tractor. I am looking to buy or build something that will hold 20 to 40 gallons that I can fill at gas station then refuel from home. The ones that I have found so far are quite expensive. What works for you?

I have the same problem.

For a solution, I went the opposite direction:

Two Gallon gas cans.

I like the 6 gallon ones from a farm supply with the long flexible tube.they say not for gas but that's because they have a real vent and are not epa rated.

A 30 gal closed head plastic drum with bung pump? You'll need a good set of drum trucks move it though as full up your pushing 300 lbs.
Next would be storage stability if you're not burning through it fast enough.

I have a bunch of cans , I have ez pour spouts on

https://www.amazon.com/EZ-POUR-4005...Y2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

they sell them at farm and fleet and a lot of hardware stores , there is the hi flow version and the regular

you drill a hole in the handle and pop in the vent

as long as you can lift the can you should be able to pour without spilling

I even have them on my bar oil cans , I use 2 1/2 gallon cans for mix and bar oil with spouts , on the oil cans the screen needs to be removed I have a regular and winter weight bar oil can I stop off at the saw shop he has bulk oil and I just get a gallon when it gets low

I use the same thing Dstone1992 uses, sometimes called racing fuel cans. You can bend the end of the spout down in the tank before tipping it up. Probably won’t find a transfer tank thats not expensive. You could probably put something together yourself, but unless you use a lot of fuel it may not be worth it. The 6 gallon “racing fuel” cans work well.

Check out a farm sale and buy an old metal funnel with a big throat on it. 50 years ago that is what we used when refueling away from the overhead tank. I am talking about a funnel that holds a gallon or more and has about a 2 inch throat. It will take it about as fast as you can pour it and no spillage.

This what I use. They come in 1 1/2 gal 2 1/2 gal and 5 gal. Also yellow for diesel. You tip the can over and rest on the fill hole and then press button. They work fabulous.
They fill fast and I don't really believe the auto shutoff, but just let go of button.

I'll second this. You can pour gas from any type of can or container into one of these funnels without spilling.

I use a large plastic funnel and 5 gallon cans without the spout.

The racing fuel can looks interesting. What I use now has no vent cap and leaks around the base. I have had enough of smelling like diesel . I also found a 14 gallon tank that is gravity fed with a nozzle that is only $160.

Like Warrior said a barrel and bung pump. Get barrel tongs or chains to unload and move a full barrel. Pump into your car before it goes bad, if need be.

most farm stores and rural hardware stores have big funnels I use one when putting oil in the house

https://www.farmandfleet.com/produc...gFC8HR9QqbXJpsnPMmqubwbeY5MaAoYjEALw_wcB

I have an offset metal funnel like this one for putting oil in the house I got it at the local farm store / hardware store

the down side of funnels is that you have one more thing to keep clean in a dirty dusty environment

A marine fuel caddy with hose. You'll have to build a ramp and platform to get it above the level of the tractor fill.
