Default Dockside Bulk Fuel Deliveries

There are alot of us on here that use alot of gas and keep their boats at their houses or a marina without fuel. Has anyone used a dockside fuel delivery service? I don't know if they exist for gasoline or just diesel. I know a few people that buy offroad diesel in bulk to fill their boats. It would be great to order 200 gallons of fuel on monday so when I want to go out on Friday night or Saturday morning the boat is already fueled and ready to go. It seems as if it would be cheaper too. Any ideas or experiences?

I don't know about deliveries, but I have priced out what a fuel trailer/pump would cost from Northern Tool. I figure the ROI would be around 5 years. My cousin already did one for his Helicopter, he got tired of flying to the airport for fuel.

We have 'em for diesel. Never seen it done for gasoline.

My sister and hubby had the farm co-op set them up with a 200? gal tank next to their dock and fill it whenever needed. Regular gas for their Sea Doos and boat.
