How do y'all carry extra fuel?

No real external options when you don't have a rooftop cargo basket - So, how do y'all carry extra fuel?


I will probably just go with this: http://www.amazon.com/No-Spill-1405-...d_sim_sbs_lg_1

I have no reason to carry extra fuel most of the time but I have seen many people use Jerry cans for the extra fuel

Internal or external? I've been kicking this idea around and trying to find a solution.

I think for occasional carry when offroading, a hitch mounted addon would be the best.

Something like this



or



If carrying internally is fine with you, then possibly altering the rear cargo area with a higher floor and using the rotopax lying flat.

Also, CRD's have this massive empty hole behind driver side rear bumper. Do gasoline versions have it too or does the gas purge and vent thingy sit there? Its quite a volume. Possibly a storage system can be placed there.

That's what I'm leaning towards.

I don't often carry...fuel that it. But when I do, I use a plain Jane yellow plastic fuel jug and carry it in the back of the WK. I tie it to the little tie hook that is under the window to keep it from sliding around or tipping. It saved my bacon once.

On another subject.... I hate those fancy, over engineered, mostly useless filler caps that you see on a lot of new plastic jugs. Some are so difficult to use that you feeling like just throwing them away. What ever happened to a simple cap and spout?

The No-Spill model supposedly works with the push of a button (like a syrup bottle at IHOP). But yeah, got a full weekend 4x4 camping trip coming up, and it would be nice to have 2-3 gallons extra available.

What happened? EPA got involved and cluster****ed the whole thing.

To save the environment they introduced a system so convoluted that more fuel has been spilled because of it than before.

Just like anything else the government gets their hands on.

Those new EPA no spill jugs are a pain when you are trying to pour.
The purpose of it is to prevent the vapours venting to the atmosphere. Gotta stop that global warming... ya know.

I will say though that they are very good at sealing up. I had a bad gas gauge in my last car and always carried a 5 gallon can with me. In the cargo area.
Even in the heat of summer. I never had even a whiff of gas smell in the car.

If you figure out how to use them. They do pour OK. Just slow.

i call them jigger syphons , but i think the correct term is self priming syphon .
Work great , Much easier and faster then trying to pour out of jerry can . Also great for filling the boat from a jerry can while it's in the water . never spill a drop.
