Thread: Fuel Options...
08-19-2009, 07:48 PM #1
I am going on a decently long trip tomorrow with my brother. We have made the trip before, but the Yami just barely made it on fuel. There are no marinas along the way either.
Are there any other options for fuel? A gas tank might leak.... Water bottles would be leak free, but the gas would eat away the plastic...
Does anyone make a portable emergency gas tank?

On your GPR? Could you strap a couple of 1 gallon plastic jugs on top of your fuel tank in front????

Are you premix? I've thought about using the oil tank as a reserve tank with a selector switch...

Hi, moved the battery and carry 1 gal in the old battery box and 1 gal in the front compartment. been doing this for years without issue. Just jam the front one in so it doesn't move about and the rear one it tight in the batt box. Not sure if you can get the same size jerry cans in the US though.

Just cruise at a lower rpm.
the oil tank idea is pretty cool, i just might have to do that

oil tank holds roughly 1 gallon, but it would have to drain back into the fuel tank

You could always just fill the hull with 15 gallons of gas like WFO does - albeit unintentionally.
