32 years ago, took a 1 gallon laquer thinner can, soldered two 1/8" NPT half couplings in the side. Brass drain cocks with barb fittings. Still works fine.

There is some wisdom in the post... Did the first one burn up due to the tank or operator...
On vacation for a spell

I put a push in rubber gromit fitting in the bottom of a quart Nalgine bottle, have been using it for years.

And yes: I have no idea how to spell gromit!

Saw this while looking at Amazon the other day... seemed a lot cheaper than the aux tank options I looked at a few years back.

I have used a large catheter tip syringe available at most drug stores and some clear tubing. Zip tied to the frame of the machine and runs for a few minutes.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.

I use a coolant recovery tank form Pep Boys. Already has the nipple on the bottom, is made of fuel proof material and all I do is change the vinyl hose to fuel hose. Cheap and easy.
