Due to covid I am unable to get solvent in 5 gallon jugs only drums available, so I say why not, however i dont have a truck I’ve got a subaru forester. The literature indicates the door height of the trunk is 34.5 inches while a standard drum is 33.5 inches so it should work. Is this a terrible idea if I secure it well, should i rent a truck?
pay a little extra to have it delivered. or find a new supplier that will deliver it. Not safe at all. imagine if you got in a wreck.
Whats in the drum…
Maybe hit a car rental service? Usually around $100 per day.
one good one in the rear could end your life… oof.
Ethanol denatured with heptane
Uhaul is rather cheap too if local enough.
Under any circumstances that could be the case
if its in the cab with you its way worse of a chance, but your right. unless you dont drive.
tbh i thought the wordplay just sounded funny.
There is a reason why you need a special licence to drive with solvents on your truck!
I was hoping to be low key and was considering a box truck but if I could throw it into the back of the subie that would make it that much easier.
yeah son… can i see your hazmat endorsement for that there barrel?!
And I dont have it though I can say in all my years driving I’ve never gotten into an accident.
statistically speaking your due for someone to rearend you if youve never been rearended. but i see your point
exactly! I promise any cop that see a drum of solvent in the back of a car will pull you over. also think about 5-600lbs squatting the back of your forester… you will be driving on the bump stops.
I would hope the place selling the drum would turn you away when you asked for help loading a drum up in a car.
I get nervous driving with a 60lb tank of butane and a 32cu tank of nitrogen in my 4 runner lol
The op is letting his nuts hang
Last week we successfully loaded a barrel into a 2016 honda civic. It can be done just gotta make sure you don’t tear the bumper off loading it.
I was told only 300 lb by the vendor, but that seemed a bit light, seems like u haul is the answer. Truth be told I wish I could get 25 gal or so but covid is causing shortages in small volumes.
In the back? On its side? I was advised against transport sideways.
On its side. Didn’t say it’s advisable, just that it can be done.
