    Gas cans

    On your Ace you have what
    as surplus gas cans?

    With my Ace 900cc I'm about 150 km max with 19.9 liters,
    I hesitate between 2 x 5 liters or 2 x 10 liters?
    I have the perfect place to put 1 on each side on my trunk
    with a rubber mat underneath

    ok i tried to fix them on top but i did not like the look

    After for fun, I try to put them in the Polaris cargo box

    Wow to my surprise, 2x 5 liters fits perfectly in the center, my tools each side

    wonderful..............

    You need to make sure those jugs are absolutely positively 100% leak proof while being heated excessively and shaking and banging around. Lots of off road rigs have burned because of leaking gasoline jugs.

    I know from experience even strapped down tight the cans do expand quite a bit and pressurize out in the heat,

    I have actually tried two things using a arctic cat mounting system from Country Cat for rotopax cans. The first photo mounted on roll bar cross member the second photo mounted on roll bar. You can see the mounting system in second photo. Also I have one on each side. Had to cut a notch on the one I mounted to accommodate the seat belt mount. The third photo I added a little mini rack between the two mounts.
