I don't think anyone really likes the idea of carrying a fuel can in or on there rig..and generally only needed on certain long runs and you take them off.. you just do your best to keep them secure. but back on subjectI looked long and hard at Giant loop products for my set up.
The larger sizes have a vinyl covering instead of nylon which , in my opinion, would require a dedicated storage platform where there would be zero chance of chafing or rubbing on a long ride.......design non starter right there for me.
The 5 gallon size which is 30"x 15" diameter is impossible to fit anywhere in my situation.
$300 for 5 gallons is pricy.
I'm guessing the UTV police will be looking at gas storage and transport much more closely in the
future and the GL product is definitely not approved for that use in the States.
The main disqualifier is the for "closed course racing use and non approved for normal transportation and storage" wording on their site......my insurance claims adjuster would be on that like a duck on a June bug if there was a fire related claim.
All that said, It looks to be a bad ass product. The truck running over it video says a lot. Wish Rotopax had a similar destructive type testing video. We're going a Rotopax direction with our fingers crossed.
I found out that the restaurant at Ticaboo has been and is closed, there is a convenient store 1.5 miles away or a restaurant in bull frog 11 miles away that's also closed.. the nearest large grocery is in Grand Junction 3hr drive.. but they have gas so gas is the least of the worries..
