Ummmm think again before asking for different color fuel containers, blue=kerosene or water yellow=diesel red=gasoline clear is usually water. there is the possibilty that putting the wrong fuel into a container is illegal.

just food for thought. I will always use red.

Hell I was googling this product and came to this site, became a member and then it dawned on me this is a "2" wheel site not a ATV site! But I have had several bikes in the past 1500 Wing, ZRX1200, XR 250, YZ450f (knee breaker) and a few older ones in the past. I have a Polaris Sportman Touring 800 right now. But I'm thinking of putting together a "older" KLR 650 into a "world tourer", as per Motorcycle Consumer News had a few years ago in 3 of there Mags. But I'm going to get me a 4 gal. gas can with my 20% discount!

  3. List price ~ $39.95
  4. He mentioned that eventually we might see a locking handle on the 1/4 turn mount. That's a great idea.
So, any interest in a limited run to do something in a non-red color?

I'd really like a 1g tank also, plan on ordering as soon as I see they are available, I personally don't much care what color it winds up being, so if someone needs more 1 more to get their color made feel free to pm me... otherwise I'll just order the red, which is also fine with me...

thanks again for helping point this product out...

in for a 1 gallon, when available. Something other the red is ok with me
as it will be for "water" since the CA law needs one of those dumb nozzles if it is for fuel

FYI, the water pack is made out of a different type of plastic than all the others and is not fuel suitable... All the others, Gas, kerosene, 2-stroke, etc, are made out of solvent resistant material.

The new 1 gal. size looks like it may fit better on the front end of hard luggage where the 2 gal. size would be too big. I was thinking about stacking them on the rear rack (1 gas, 1 water) but now have to reconsider.

I am thinking of mounting two on my GSA, one each side mounted off the passenger pegs somehow, as I need a 700KM (450mile) off road range for my Northern territory trip this year. I estimate I will need 50 Litres of fuel or 13.5 Gals for one leg of the trip.
