last sunday i went 65 miles with a smashed, half gallon peanut, filled up 3/4ths so it wouldn't leak out of the cap, wide open at 35 to 40mph.

almost ran out of gas and had to go to home depot for oil and fill up at shell. then i had to shake my bike around all crazy like i was mad at it or somethin...
