    Hi ADVer's,
    me n a mate are looking at getting a few 12L fuel bladders from
    http://liquidcontainment.com.au/cartpage/viewproduct/20/12-Litre-Touring-Bladder

    Is anyone interested in a bulk buy?

    Dimensions are 430mmx450mm.
    12L max capacity.
    Odor proof layer in them so they should be ok in hard boxes and other closed containers.
    Apparently they are really tough. Lots of guys on here say good things about them.

    They are listed at $150+GST each and are as little as $110+GST if 11+ are ordered.

    Just gauging interest at this point. Will work out logistics if there is enough interest.

    I am in Vic. Obviously there would need to be something added for postage over the $110+GST.

    Please only put your hand up if you are serious. If we get 11 orders or more then I will post a confirmation, and PM those who have put their hands up.
    Lets see if we can get 11+ orders together people.

    I'll start the ball rolling with two for me and two for my mate.
    4 down, 7 to go.

    Before you lash out $100+, they are approved for petrol? There should be a little circle with UN inside it and an approval number underneath it if it is to be used for dangerous goods. If you have a look at Jerry Cans for petrol you'll see the circle and numbers. A lot of those bladders are intended for non dangerous goods like water, wine, diesel where any type of container can be used within reason.

    I personally cant see how a bladder would pass a 5 m drop test. But I maybe wrong.

    Hmmm, thanks. I see it does indeed say that in the fine print now that I look closely.

    That is a good question. There are quite a few riders on here that have them, some have shared their experiences.

    I have decided to go down this path for extra fuel storage but I encourage others to do their research and make their own decision. I agree that physical and legal considerations are both important when deciding how to carry extra fuel.

    The bladders are sold for motorcycle use so the implied purpose is petrol but I don't see that approval sticker so I guess they aren't approved. If you get any info please let us know.
    Thanks,
    Oli

    All we have to do is place one big order and the supplier could send them out in two parcels. One to us in SA and the other to the remainder. We could probably negotiate a much better price for 20+

    Oh, great, there you are DRTrev.

    Definitely thinking one big order is going to be better!
    I am not in a screaming hurry (leaving in April) so I have a few weeks to get a good sized group together. Let ya mates know everyone.

    Guys, two mates and I got one each of these before our Cameron Cnr/Strezlecki trip last year. :freaky
    They are a bloody good bit of kit, user friendly (but can be awkward to tie on when full), and we were all very happy with them, but I gotta say, be aware they most certainly aren't odour proof.
    Once used, even when empty they had to be left outside overnight. No chance at all of storing in a pannier. I tried putting inside a triple thickness shopping bag with limited success. My mate was onto it and was stuffing his into a cheap dry bag, which seemed to do the trick.
    Has been in the shed empty for a few months now, and the smell has gone.
    Would be happy to loan mine to someone if they were after a dummy run.
    Once again, other than that, full marks for a very good bit of gear.

    Just my 2c worth.:deal

    Pete.
