The way it is now the fuel tanks can easily be confused as water bottles from across the street.

I bought the Profile Design dual bottle rack on Amazon, but a lot of bicycle shops sell them too. It runs about $39.

The petcocks are 3/8 pipe thread for 1/4" fuel line. I bought them from Bates Discount Cycle here in Dallas (972) 620-0929. The petcocks were about $18 each. I bought the brass lock nuts at a local hardware store in the plumbing section. You should be able to find a Tee for the fuel lines there too.

You can get the fuel bottles anywhere.
i think i'll run 3 lines. the only part that worries me about it is setting up the petcocks not sure how you got a good seal on those but the rest seems simple enough
