    I may post this on any other thread about carrying fuel, but I'll start here on the Tool Tube discussion. A few years ago, I followed this thread and added two tool tubes to my TW rack for carrying spare fuel:

    This worked fine for a few years. However, during March Moto Madness in Tennessee this year, we had to run a few miles on the WORST pot-holed gravel road I've ever seen. The plastic tabs on the tool tubes just didn't survive. I made it back with liberal use of Gorilla tape! When I got home, I went to work on "fuel bottle V2.0" and scrapped the Tool Tubes altogether. I bought two fire extinguisher mounts that are hard-bolted to the rack. I then use these handy Titan rubber straps to secure the tank. I'll be riding in the Michigan Upper Peninsula this weekend to give them a pounding. I hope they survive.

    Follow-up: The Titan straps did the job holding my two Primus 1.5l fuel bottles in place securely. I did add a second Titan strap to each tank, for visual balance, if nothing else.

    Good on the second Titan straps. Had envisioned vibration possibly allowing contact between aluminum bottom of Primus and steel Cyclerack with unpleasant results.
