 Unless you can find one at auction, your best bet will be Northern Hydraulics. What the auctions tho, I watched a 100 gal w/12v pump go for $550.  :o.

Go with a Tuthill pump.  They cost a bit more than a GPI but last a lot longer.  If you've got a Tractor Supply in your area you'll get a tank cheaper than from Northern Hydraulics.  Northern really gets you on the shipping.  You only think you're saving money ::)

A new 95 gal rectangular is $275- $300 depending on which farm supply store you find one.  If you make one, stay just under 100 gal as there are strict DOT rules that start at 100 gal.  Also if you make one, put slosh baffles in the tank.  Use a good pressure and suction relief fill cap.

I agree with the Tuthill 12v pump. I have had two Fill Right (also made by Tuthill but cheaper) and have had problems with both. Vanes went out in the first one and the replacement struggles to pump and leaks when it is cold.

You can find some 95 gal pickup tanks at farm sales, usually with hand pumps for $75-$150. Ones with 12V pumps are more depending on age or condition.
