It takes longer to fill a tank from rotopax than it does from a gas pump, time wise. And iron butt rides, in order to get that many miles in one day, are mostly road rides - which have gas stations. There's just no need to carry that much gas (even the TT tank is overkill) when you are on regular roads.
I have a feeling that there are some decisions being made on certain teams lately to make things more complex in order to ensure a certain technological standard of confusion is met.
