AdvTank for the F800GS

Adventure Tank LLC now has an auxilliary tank for the BMW F800GS! This tank carries approximately 1.6 gallons and can be the difference between riding it out and pushing it out. The tank comes with an anodized aluminum top plate with convenient tie down points.
The mechanics behind the tank - the advtank drains into the stock tank as the fuel level is pulled down. The advtank effectively empties first - automatically while you are riding. No need to stop and unpack.
The advtank bolts into the stock grab-handle and mounting holes in the rear fender.
The advtank plumbs into your existing stock vent line system, and there is no need to remove your carbon canister.
This tank has been used and reviewed elsewhere at advrider.
For the month of August 2012, get 20% off your BMW tank order by using this coupon code at checkout - 'inmate'. Which makes right now, the perfect time to pick up one!

I was involved with the design of this thing and wanted to add a comment or two.

Our design goals:
- 6 gallons total in the F800 = ~300 miles- Check!
- Low cost: this setup costs $240 on the deal FORE! is running right now- that's a very cost effective solution
- Easy to install/ remove - Check!
- Compatible with most stock and aftermarket luggage - Check! I believe Jesse is the only luggage that requires some work to install.
- Simple and reliable plumbing- Check!

Overall, this gives you a great improvement in range for not much money. It includes the rear rack as well, hard to beat that.

I just put one on my F800 last night. Now I see the 20% off. Crap!

Guess I should have done more research but I needed it NOW.

I'll be giving it a good test in a couple of weeks!

Great idea! Could this be used on a R1200GS? I would interested in one for my R1200GS. An extra 70+ miles could make all difference sometimes.

Will this tank fit the 2013 F700GS?

If so, any modifications, necessary?

Top Case

Any case that has a mounting system that bolts to a plate or a rack would work. Just need to drill the holes and go.
