    I saw a bike today with this extra fuel tank mounted to it. It was a red cylinder about 10' long and 3' dia. can you buy these somewere or is this something this guy made? It would be nice to be able to carry about 3/4 of a gallon with me so I am not filling the tank everyday.

    A fire extinguisher maybe? You can add a fuel tank by mounting up a weedwacker tank or similar.

    I talked to the guy but all he would say was it was an extra plastic fuel tank. but I do think it looked a bit like a fire extinguisher. I was just wondering if there was a tank that I could buy, that looked better 1 liter soda bottle taped to thw motor frame. we all know that style counts when you arrive at work and park next to
    the guys with those cafe' racers motorcycles.

    Camping stoves using Coleman gas with the plunger to pressurize it, use an aluminum tank, red, in various sizes. They come with a cap for storage so it can be thrown into a backpack leak free.
