    In keeping with my "stealth" plan here's a look at my bagged tank...

    It's a spare mini moto tank I had kicking around and it holds about 2L of fuel. So far this is more than enough fuel for my needs as even though the engine is running very rich I get about 40km of range out of it. Should I need more fuel for a serious road trip there's enough room in that bag to carry a couple 2L stainless steel bottles worth of reserve fuel plus a liter of oil should I need to mix up more along the way :)

    Stealth bikes are really cool and I can't wait to see the finished project.

    If I show off the completed project as a whole it would no longer be "stealthy" now would it ;) You could say my workshop is akin to area 51 at the moment...lol

    The picture is deceiving...when I measured this tank with a 2L measuring cup I had about 100ml left in the cup after filling it to the bottom of the tank opening. So your getting 80k or so per liter? WTH !!...lol That's double of what I'm getting! Mine is obviously running stupid rich and I've only got one notch left on the needle that I can move to. I'm thinking now that maybe me packing the muffler can with dirt bike muffler wool has something to do with the richness...maybe I'll pull a little out and see what happens.
