Default Re: Ammo Can for Gas Tank and Battery- Bad Idea?

DON'T DO IT! I can't stress enough the danger of having a battery and a fuel container in the same closed compartment. Yes, the tank will vent and the fumes can/will collect inside the ammo box. What if a battery connection came loose while you're riding and the connection arcs. The effect will be exactly like what happens in the combustion chamber of your engine. The spark plug, or the bad connection on your battery will provide the ignition for an explosion.
I wouldn't want to be straddling a box of gasoline fumes when that happens. Would you?
