    I never did like the tear drop tank sitting on the frame so i modificated it. Instead of a 1/2 gallon tank its now a gallon tank sitting in a wooden basket in the back. There is room for 2 - one gallon tanks actually.

    It's not really gravity fed, but siphon fed. The siphon has never failed, even on hills. I put the tank inside a pillow blanket when im riding so the orange can doesn't show. If there were someway to make the engine invisible i would do that too! I don't like the attention so much.

    The fuel line runs down into the tank. I found a bleeder valve at a hobby store and screwed it into the plastic tank so the siphon works properly. Here are some pics.

    Hey Captain Ron, that looks just like the tank on my J-Dog. Mine is a 1 1/2 tank, I finally drained it and refilled it the other day. Mine came off a old generator I think.

    Fair31, I Did Not Even Notice There Was No Muffler. The Frame Is All Black From The Exhaust. Must Have Been Loud. Motor Is Real Loose. Most Of The Brackets On The Rear Rack Are Broke. It Should Be Ready For Opti-2!! I Like Big Tanks, Even If I Don`t Get Out Of Site. At Least The Option Is There. Ron
