    Auxiliary fuel tank

    I am planning my vacations and i will probably need extra fuel tank. I was thinking of putting two 4lt fuel tanks inside the front sides of my 2007 RXT. Would this be OK or i will have problem with high temperatures..? Any ideas

    Use 4 load straps to attach this on the back of your ski. It's the most secure stable aux fuel system I've used. The only one I would trust during long distance trips.

    Thanks for the info, helpful advise i would say. Do you have any picture of how you tied the fuel tank? And one more question, did you wash your pwc with fresh water during the trip or you just let it for the end? By the way i saw your video twice!

    Here's an alternate solution, although a little costlier and time consuming to build: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...8-DIY-PWC-Rack

    The directions were custom made for an '06 RXT. It's very strong/durable and will hold four 5 gallon tanks, which will give you an effective range of 175 miles, based on a 5 mpg usage.

    I had seen it before. It looks like a very handfull idea. The extra cost i don't mind however i am leaving in one week so time is the problem. And another problem arise. If my wife see that i will end up carrying 10 different types of sun protection, sunbeds, portable table.... LOL But other than that it looks like a project i will be doing in the long run. If any questions arise i will ask for your help if you dont mind, thanks again
