I think I get it....that way there will be gas in the original tank but also in the peanut tank. Sort of like not replacing the tank, just expanding it. I wonder if I can get a gas cap that will fit the original tank so not to sacrifice the original gascap incase I want to go back to using only the on board tank. What size/kind of nipple should I be looking for?
I have a need for slightly increased speed
