Just scrapped out a POS Craftsman push mower. Saved the tank, about 2 qts. Should work well hanging from the handlebars testing the bike engine before re-installing the real tank.

One of the Dirtbag Challenge competitors this year wore a Camelbak full of gas with a hose to the carburetors. No fuel tank on the bike.

Should impart an interesting taste next time he uses it for water.

Hopefully the plastic bladder is formulated to be able to take gas without dissolving and either spilling all over him, or getting in the gas and coating the carb or valves leading to failure.

I used a dawn dish soap bottle when I was synchronizing the 4-bank on my brother's Suzuki GS650. The "nipple" on the lid was perfect for attaching some rubber tubing.

That's what I use. Add a B&S shut off valve and you're golden. Plus being plastic, it's easy on stuff if it falls.
