    Extra fuel is always nice

    On the hunt for a small gas can that will provide me a little fuel “just in case” I came across this gas can on Amazon. It fits perfectly in the case I have attached to my rack. I can fit 2 of them inside. The cans are rated for water, fuel or oil. Plan is to get a second one to use for water. This will provide me some extra fuel and drinking water for trail riding and moto camping. I will paint a blue stripe on the water can.

    I have had it full of fuel on its side all day in the box with no leaking. Hopefully it stays that way long term. All the reviews are great.

    It has a 2.5 liter capacity

    I just mounted a 1gal. Rotopax to my top box. Works great.

    My buddy took one of these and separated the two tanks. The 2.5 liter tank is compact and would give a TW another 60-70 km range. https://www.amazon.ca/Scepter-Liter-.../dp/B000BQSVXG

    No problem at all, Tom! Since the topic is extra fuel...I just mounted a RotoPax FuelPax series 1.5 gallon tank on my Tusk Utility Top Rack. The FuelPax series is blow-molded instead of roto-molded, and as such it has a 5 year warranty instead of a 10 year. But RotoPax was - and still is offering free mounts with the FuelPax series! Since a mount was almost 1/2 the price of the damn gas can, I figured that was a deal. (Sucker?) I will be utilizing it this coming week to scout around John Martin Reservoir looking for some new small game hunting grounds, as well as some new shore fishing access for when the wind gets too much for the boat. Anyway, here is a pic!IMG_20190423_184453.jpg

    That fits perfectly on the Tusk rack! Nice work.

    Sounds like a fun ride.
