I probably wouldn't since it might be dangerous, but I've thought about it.

Never. I don't even really like carrying gas home in the trunk for the lawnmower. Especially now that the trunk is a cargo hatch. YIKES.

That's one dumb idea that I have never even thought of. I do carry gasoline in my truck bed for the generators though.

No, not safe. With pickups an auxiliary tank can be installed into the bed of the truck.
