    Gas jugs

    Well today i went an bought two VP gas jugs, for the polaris since its pre-mix. They were kinda pricey for a gas container, 47 bucks for the tank an the one way valve filler neck. How fast do they dispense fuel becuase the old fuel jugs i had would take freakin forever to dispense 5 gallons.

    My jugs take forever as well. That's why I'm gonna punch my own closable vent in it.

    For future reference, Virageracer from here on the Polaris boards is a VP dealer and get somewhat better deals on the gas jugs and such.

    I like the JAZZ JUGS better..
    Ive got a few jazz jugs from 98 that are still perfect and don't leak. plus they are a bit thicker and heavy duty compare to the VP..

    I also got 3 new VP cans and they all leak unless you put the gorilla grip down on the caps.. the mouth of all the VP can ive seen have sharp edges and ARE NOT perfectly flat where the lid O-RING seals causing them to have to be overtightened to keep from leaking gas all over you nice ski or in the back of you nice truck. they just seam not to be as well made as the JAZZ.. IMO.

    Id trade all three of these new VP cans for 1 good jazz

    Yes it does, but the handle also vents it at the base when its inverted so the gas dumps out real quick.
    I also used an old fire extinguisher mount big one from a school bus, bolted onto the trailer so the gas can straps into it, no worries about transporting extra gas then!
    I also think it just looks cool

    Looks cool but it's only 2.5 gallons

    That's a bummer, I was hoping for 5-10 gallon sizes. I guess I'll have to stay with my 11 gallon quick fill set up.
