Looking for a gas container for the track

I'm looking for those clear gas containers for the track. The ones with long hoses and screw caps. They look like they're made of a thick clear plastic.

Any leads on where to get them?

Yep, I usually carry them. I just sold my last two ones today. I'll have more early next week.

Your cost 27.99 Retail is 34.99

I have a couple of gas cans, they always seem to leak while filling the bike. Just bought one from a gas station at my last Grattan day and the things is a total POS. It doesn't really seal. I figured I'd get a couple nice ones with long spickets.

Dano, I'd like two or so. Do you think they'll be in the 13th? I might be in town. Otherwise are they a PIA to ship?

No man, not a problem. I should have them Monday or Tuesday. I can ship them if you want or just stop by and you can pick them up. Let me know.

thx

But just remember....

Plastic containers breath.

So, if you store your expensive racing fuel in it, the good aromatics WILL disappate out. I only use the containers for measuring and transfering.

Clean metal containers are a must otherwise.

Additionally, if you are trying to measure accurately, square ones don't work. They bow out on the sides. So, to measure accurately, use a round one.

I do racing fuels too. Seems like I have my hand in everything.
