    Auxiliary Fuel Bladder

    Has anyone on here explored using one of these for fuel in the bow storage area? One would fit nicely in my 300x bow for those extended trips.

    I dont think its worth it unless youre racing and you need to auto drain those extra gallons on the fly. I carry 4.4 in 2 plastic jugs in storage bin and save all the bow storage. I also would not feel safe with fuel bladder laying on top of battery. I know the plastic cover is good insulation but you never know what might cause a short and it only takes one spark in case of gas leak.

    What is it that you carry in the storage bin?

    I carry 2, 2.2 gallon plastic fuel jugs in front storage bin.

    They are cheap, $10.00, easy to transport, fill, drain etc.

    Far less of a fire hazard than fuel bag laying on top of battery.

    Only thing I cant do is refuel on the fly. I do have to stop for about 1.2 minutes.

    What nicjac is doing is a great way.

    Otherwise if you must have a different system get ahold of Freibe at Clawson in Ca.
    This holds about 10 gallons, VERY strong & secure and works well.

    I agree with rlovebk... I use the Friebe system and design. It will mount under your front storage bin. His design set up is that it will drain into the main tank as your main tank emptys. (with no extra pumps or electrical wires) Tried, True and tested. You will not be disappointed, your wallet maybe everytime you fill up 30+ gallons of superunleaded, but the Friebe system is no joke.

    Anyone have a ballpark price on this setup? I assume you can easily remove it when not needed, right?
