    I'm pretty sure you'll find what I did and hundred of other ideas if you use the search engine.

    Put 'carry fuel' in the search. You'll come up with the three big threads.

    first one

    My old set up, Happy Trails racks and Moto Mosko 80 bags. Rotopax mounts and one gallon cans. The Rotopax cans are the better one. Very, Very tough and are lined and legal in the USofA.

    I did, but not field tested.

    Drilled holes in the rack top and bottom tube, pressed/pulled in blind nuts, mounted a strip of alu (light need to change that to steel though), on which I mounted the mount for a rotopax.
    Found 1 pic, if you want, the rack is not mounted at this moment, can take a few other pics tonight
