    Water bottle as extra fuel in oil tanks place

    Hey guys!
    On a scale from 1-mexican (I'm mexican I can make this joke), how dangerous do you think it is to place a plastic carbonated water bottle (,little thicker plastic) as extra fuel in place of the oil tank as shown in the pic? I have a long ride today and need the extra fuel!

    Thanks!!

    Sketchy. I think if there is any expansion of the fuel it may pop open. Just my initial thought.

    Is this an X2? Can you put it under the seat and put the fire extinguisher where you have the bottle?

    What happened to the Oil Tank?

    It should still fit.You could use it as an Auxiliary Fuel Tank. Connect it to the Main Fuel Tank.

    Auxiliary Tank must have a Tank Vent. No Return Line. Auxiliary Supply Line connects to Main Tank via Tank Vent (remove the Main Vent Check Valve).

    That should allow Fuel to flow from the Auxiliary Tank into the Main Fuel Tank when the Engine is running.

    Make sure that the Oil Tank Cap does not leak.

    ^ Have used the oil tank as an "extra fuel" tank, just as JC described. Works well, and quite a bit safer than a water/soda bottle
