Spun Gas Tanks
« on: March 14, 2013, 07:44:57 AM »
Where are you guys buying your spun gas tanks?(5 gallon)  Which model do I need, and how are you attaching them to the cages?  Thanks for any input you can share.

I've been wondering the same thing.....specifically diam and length.
As for attaching them.....most seem to use a simple bracket.... check out this video...you can catch a quick view of it.

Around 05:19 is kinda a good look at the brackets...

I went back to a stock tank long ago. The spun tank raises the center of gravity. The fuel sloshes around and out on you. The '5 Gallon' which is the 18x8 is actually about 4.5 gallon. It is wide enough that it will hit the ground if you roll over. It cannot be contained inside the roll cage.

Did you keep the same type of fuel pump system as the original? Or did you swap it out for an electric pump?
