I am going to try this when I get my cT assuming either my 3 liter can or 5 liter can will fit in the trunk on the back of the seat area.
I'm sure not a big fan of having a fuel container in a closed space like a trunk. Especially if you're carrying clothing or food in there at the same time. I think mounting a Rotopax between the Tub and the Tug is the best way to go.
When doing the CDT, I had mounted one to the front of my pannier as seen in this pic of my rig when I had to remove the tub to repair a "Bad Batch of Material" (sic) on my DMC rig.
Maybe I will make a bracket for the gas can and hang it off the side of my Ural like on this Honda CT125.
Although I did not have any leaking fuel on this setup on my scooter.
BTW, just need the extra fuel capacity in remote areas and not the normal areas I ride in.
Been doing it a couple of years now with the Rotopax Gasflask. I store my jacket, helmet, and gloves in the trunk 8 to 10 hours a day, and have never detected even the slightest odor even on the hottest days.
Reminds me of that story of the farmer who went out in his field and found one of his cows lying there, belly up, and blown up like a balloon, dead as a door nail. The farmer’s comment: “Gee, she never did that before!”
If it works for you, go for it, but I’ll pass based on past experiences with fuel contamination of food and clothing over the years.

Choose, and use fuel containers with care.
The OEM jerry can mounted between the tub and tug works well for me. I use the OEM spout and while I spill a few drops while refilling, it’s really not a big deal.
The OEM jerry can spout spills a lot less than the new fangled ones that come with the RotoPax. I ended up getting the yellow spout for diesel fuel that isn't as fiddly and spills much less. I keep waiting for the California Air Resources Board to arrest me but not yet.
Worthless fucking piece of shit spout:
Real world solution that works!
Yeah, the OEM spout is actually pretty nice. I also carry a funnel and use the two together. No drips or spills. It's pretty hard to improve upon the OEM jerry can in my opinion. It looks like it belongs on the bike too.
While I don't hate the "safety" spout, I do prefer and use the yellow spout for my Rotopax Gasflask. My favorite is still the my surplus Swiss Army Nato can spout, unfortunately it doesn't fit in unleaded fuel filler openings, but I can put 5 gallons in my tractor, or fill the riding mower in 10 seconds without spilling.
