    What tank is Calimus John using?

    Third picture down gives a pretty good view of it. He says it's 4.1 gallon. Someday is here! - ADVrider

    I believe that when this tank is mounted on a TW there is some amount of fuel that is not accessible (without a clunk ) because it is carried below the petcock.

    TW-Brian, do you have any idea how much of that 4.1 gallons is actually not accessible? (rbm is going to be so pleased that the day did not pass without a gas tank thread)

    BikerJosh also has one of these tanks. I think he has a pickup tube curled into the lowest part of the tank.

    bikerjosh's clunk is great because otherwise a previous posting estimated about one gallon was below level of stock petcock and thus unavailable.

    IIRC, more than a clunk, i think he had an internal pump and dual line to access the fuel on both sides of the frame.

    Dangnabbit, I can't find a post on the internal pump and dual feed lines. I wanted to see how that worked. 4.1 gallons is fantastic capacity for a long trip, but if you can only use 3.1 then it doesn't appear to me as that much better than the Clarke TW specific 2.7 gallon since I would have no desire to carry an extra 6+ pounds of gas that is for all practical purposes of no use. Does anyone know if that particular setup was posted on the forum?
