    Does anyone know where I can get a 1 gallon fuel tank? I'm looking for one that I don't have to spend too much money on (I'm Po). Thanks for any response.

    Use a one gallon red plastic fuel can from Wally world. I think Deacon used one on one of his builds.

    It will start leaking from around the cap. I know this because I occasionally used the soda bottles for spare fuel. If it has fuel in it for too long the seal inside the plastic cap will start to deteriorate and gas will leak out.

    I bought a rear rack from Meijer for $17 shipped, and I can strap my gas can to it. Good enough for me.

    Boygofast, on Ebay has the 4L tank every now and then.

    Keep an eye on the auctions too, I picked one up for $15 on a bid last year.

    Dude -- a soda bottle will Disappear on contact with petroleum if it is not #2 HDPE (High Density Poly-Ethylene). If a plastic container is Not HDPE it will melt in your hands the instant petrol touches it.

    Check the recycle triangle for the number. If it is #2 then it is HDPE and you are good to go.
