    Cool Carrying Extra Fuel

    Any thoughts on an extra internal fuel bladder for long hauls? We're planning a trip to blackstone glacier weather permitting in a few wks and looking at options to carry extra fuel. Can go the strapped to side tanks, but considering something like this solution:

    not sure how 25 gal would fit in my hull but custom shape could be a possibility as long as I don't end up with the nickname 'ocean fireball'

    Which ski ? If the Ultra platform you may have the storage for something like that in the front, but an additional 150-200#'s in the nose of the ski could be challenging. How you going to transfer the fuel to main tank?

    It's a Kawi ultra 300x - 2011. Good point. May be wise to test in the lake first. plan would be some type of pump that emptied the bladder into the main tank.

    When I went to The Bahamas, I used a cargo strap to secure two 6 gallon tanks and an ice chest to the rear platform. It worked, but I would want it more secure next time since the open ocean is pretty grueling.

    Check out the one Kev did on Jetski Junkie FB group page. He used a fuel pump to send gas from his external tank on the back into the fuel filler neck with the flip of a switch.
