Pick up some 4 or 5 quart oil jugs at a truck stop. Use them and the discard (properly) when done. They are heavy and designed to hold petroleum.

latest iteration...

buried in my post upthread, here is my latest iteration of the RotoPax for scooter solution. Roughly 70 miles worth of additional range there...

2L pop bottles in the tank panniers also work for quick runs between gas stations and then you can ditch them.....just don't crash...

Rotopax on pillion seat plate. This is a 2-can set up that I normally carry 1 gal/water on top of the 1 gal/gas


A second gas can could be substituted for the water if I ever needed that kind of range...or even another extender and a third gallon
