Gas Cans To Help You Get A Little Farther Down The Road

Be prepared with a spare bit of fuel for your next ride.

When you go on long tours, its best to be prepared with a little bit of extra fuel in case you miss the gas station.

It happens to the best of us… “Oh, I will get gas at the next stop…” only to end up on the side of the road with an empty fuel tank. When your motorcycle has sipped the last precious drops and you are left stranded is not the time to wish you had a spare can of gasoline with you. Take preventative measures by taking an extra liter or so of gas to help you get a little farther down the road and hopefully to the next junction. Here are three portable fuel can options that you can lash onto your motorcycle.

MSR Liquid Fuel Bottle

The 11-ounce bottle weighs 0.1 pound, the 20-ounce is 0.25 pound, and the 30-ounce weighs 0.35 pound.Amazon

The MSR Liquid Fuel Bottle is one compact fuel-toting option for your motorcycle. You have either the 11-, 20-, or 30-ounce bottle to choose from so you can purchase the size that fits your storing capabilities. Safety measures are also in place with the child-resistant push-down-and-twist leak-proof cap. Maybe you don’t need the bottle specifically for your motorcycle fuel? Well, you can carry kerosene, diesel, white gas, mineral spirits, and even jet fuel (for the F-16 you have in your backyard—Motorcyclist Editor Adam Waheed has one, you don’t? Kidding!).

Yundxi Liquid Fuel Bottle

For those who want to store a little more fuel, the Yundxi Liquid Fuel Bottle comes in 0.5-, 0.75-, 1-, and 1.5-liter options. The bottle is made of aluminum with a seamless finish and sealed leak-proof cap that allows you to bring the fuel for your bike or other fuel along on your camping trip.

Walmeck Liquid Fuel Bottle

Have a pop of orange—instead of the usual red—for your next fuel can with the Walmeck fuel bottle.Amazon

The Walmeck Liquid Fuel Bottle is made of high-quality, lightweight aluminum alloy material and is closed with a looped seal cap for easy carrying. Rather than the usual red fuel can color, this one is orange for a nice pop of a different color. This fuel bottle comes in 0.5-liter or 0.75-liter capacities so, again, you can opt for the size that best suits your motorcycle’s fuel tank needs. If you go camping, this can also be used to store the white gas used in portable stoves. Wherever your adventure takes you be sure you are prepared.
