    what kind of gas cans are you guys using. These cheap ones leak more than what comes out when you use them. My ztr eats gas so I am always refilling. All I want is one that don't leak and holds gas plus can be easly fill my ztr.

    i use a 28 gallon gas tank, portable on wheels..... real nice, make things great when using a ztr.... b/c most ztr are 9-13.5 gallon capacity tanks.... and burn between 1.2-1.4 gallons an hr or most w/b burnin .75-1gallon an hr. .... so all you need to do is fill up once from the gas caddy a day.... gas cady will last for multiple days at a time, which is great minimize trips to gas stations. example the 28gallon caddy will fuel you for about 24hrs or 3days so if your working 5days a week all you need to do is make 2trips a week to gas stations..... depending on how far your gas station is this could pay for the caddy itself a season......

    i use it for my boat 2 which is great, mine was given to me for free from my uncle b/c he moved to mississippi and sold his boat, which he used the caddy for

    I hope this link works..... :cool:

    oh by the way the gas caddy is just like a fuel pump at the gas station so no more spills or struggles, never touch an 5gallon gas tank again in ur life my friend :)

    You must be talking about the ones from Blitz. High quality junk is what they are.

    I use a jerry can also. If you go to a gun show or military surplus auction you can find nice olive drab cans and spouts for cheap. Give them the rattle can red treatment and you're good to go. These things are nearly indestructible and use a rubber or cork gasket to seal the mouth of the can. I have never had one leak.
