I have removed my fuel tank from inside the cab. Does anyone know the biggest size boat tank that will fit outside on the fender next to the hood? Size,brand, mounting? Thx for any help..Jim

Default Re: St4 snow-trac boat gas tank

Mine has a 12 gallon on it. I discovered the manufacturer is out of business, as they were bought out by a competitor. The name escapes me at the moment..

The Company who bought them out still makes a 12 gallon that is with in 1/2" of the same size as the tank I have.. It is also about the same capacity of the original tank in the cab.

I have been considering going back to a fabricated steel tank in the cab. I don't like that much weight out on the fender, as you can see the bow it has caused over the years, from being a bit to heavy. A smaller tank, of course would be lighter when full. 8X12= 96 lbs. of fuel roughly... Quite a bit of weight..

Mine is mounted behind the right hand headlight, in a tight fitting aluminum tray some one made to fit tightly to the tank. It is also in the basket some one built on each side of mine..

Look at the 50 second mark to see mine.

Regards, Kirk

11 Gallon tank , in front of the windshield, on the right side of the fender.
Also i can carry extra fuel with 2 Jerry Can = 2 X 11 gallon. 22 gallon = 80 liters.
I am not going in long distances so the jerrycan is only to carry fuel, only for the main tank.

But if i decide to make a long distance ......Ride, i make sure that i have only the necessary.
