Hoping someone might have ideas for me. I'm looking for a way to carry spare fuel on my 2005 500. I will need 1.5 gallons to bridge the gap between gas stations on a Colorado cross country trip. I do have small saddlebags and a sissy bar bag. Thanks!
The Seafoam cans are a great idea for shorter distances but for him they are only 16oz, he'd need 10 of them.I usually ride with a backpack on and a small pouch strapped across the rear seating area. The pouch I use is a modified toiletries travel bag from wally world that was maybe $5. It is the perfect size to hold 4 Seafoam cans nice and neat. It's not exactly waterproof, but for the cans, it's not an issue.
We were both wrong. 2 pints (16*2=32) equals a quart - 4 quarts (32*4=128) equals a gallon. Twelve pints equals 1.5 gallons (128+64=192 oz).Only 6 for the 1.5 gallons he needed. And, of course, this many SeaFoam cans may not be do-able if he's going any time soon. It takes a while to generate that many cans. But I use SeaFoam in just about every internal combustion engine I have. I recently used a smidgeon to get my pressure washer going since it'd been sitting for a while. It even works well just before an oil change, too.
I suppose gnissen, you could see if you have any buddies with empty cans to use. Even a half gallon may get you another 20 -25 miles down the road.
Yeah, and I think they come with a seal which has to be broken to use the gas. Not refillable unless you want to risk the cans leaking in your saddlebags. I use the ones that are premixed with oil for 2-stroke engines. It is more stable then mixing your own, so you don't have to use it all up in a short time. Otherwise, it would not be worth the outrageous price.Ouch - $24/gallon!
