Cool RX50 / SX50 Auxiliary Fuel Storage

Sometimes the nearest fuel station is at least 6 miles away when you switch to reserve. That station either closed early for the night, or the pump nozzles are out of service. Been there, done that enough times.

Fuel/Oil Containers

FuelFriend 1 liter container for storing premixed fuel.


Their 500ml container is enough for storing a day's ride worth of 2 cycle oil: 3x 5 liter fuel refills = 15 liters @32:1 premix = 468.75 milliliters of oil.


Refilling the Fuel Container


Fit a 5mm plastic straight piece between the fuel tap / carb feed line. Pull fuel line off and refill container from the bike's tank, obviously makes sense having at least 2 liters in the tank before draining off a liter of it.

Here's a way of lugging around even more fuel. Only relevant for bikes ridden in daylight hours though. Or off-road at night with LED enduro light bars mounted on handlebars, for example..
