Si claro

The red bottle is .24 gal. It's my traveling "moron bottle", as in note to self: "you are a moron for passing that last station."

The Rotopax are pre-advtank and are normally carried empty until I think I want to push and possibly miss gas.

The nice thing about the AdvTank is that it drains first so the weight disappears early. I will probably keep the Rotopax just because.

EDIT: Oh yeah! Rode Cody, Wy to Durango, Co. 703 miles. Last leg was 353 miles. I ran some 75mph interstate, mostly 65mph state roads, and screamed through Red Mountain Pass (Ouray, Co). Got 53mpg.

Went 299 to empty and topped off with the Rotopax. Went 350 miles to the gas station and put in 6.6 gallons.
My capacity is 7.8 meaning I still had 1.2 in the tank. At 53 mpg I have a 400 mile range!
