I ran last year on a stock tank (KTM 530). I packed a FEW liters of fuel in the backpack each day. Ayyiii Ayyiii Ayyiiii. Dumped them in as strategically needed.

We contracted and relied on Mag 7 for fuel- this proved to not work out. I'm going to say that the fuel stops were not where they were supposed to be that day..... stuff happens, I know. Whole other story. I made it home, that's what counts.

I ran out of fuel twice- Once it was at the top of a hill with a small pueblo at the bottom. I mooched a gal of rot gut fuel and made it to the end of the section. Second time was in the middle of nowhere and there were some dudes camped out with a 40 gal tank pretty much where I stalled. Someone was looking out for us.

Not being familiar with the route/area, I have no idea re: the availability of gas along the way.

Would prefer to not have to rely on a fuel service but don't want to lug around 6 gallons of gas on the bike, either.
