Jerry Cans


Hi Folks.
Not sure where to put this post so here it is...*L*

I was wondering where fellow Xtrailers have mounted Jerry cans on their vehicle? Going to Broken Hill later this year with caravan and dont want to run outta petrol.


Regards
Bluey.

Why dont you carry the jerry cans in the caravan or mount them on the caravan ?

Plus it'll be much safer than carrying petrol inside the car.

Well I thought of mounting them on the van but what (and that is our plan) if we use the van as a staging post and head out in just the Exxie.

Then you make sure that your exy is filled-up with petrol until you come back to the van. emoticon

You guys are avoiding a good question that I had also been wondering about!

For those without a van/trailer, where do you put your jerry can?

Re: Jerry Cans


Sorry Phil,

I for one with kids at the back of my exy will NEVER put a jerry can inside the car, no matter how much that will save me on fuel. Hard core 4WDs do have mounting points on the tailgate or the sides to have the jerry can located externally, but even that is risky like a time bomb in case of an accident.

Safety first is my answer in this regard.

Re: Jerry Cans


the only option for jerry cans on an exy would be to get yourself a good quality roof basket and store them up there. You can get proper brackets to hold them in. Its not ideal but will get you out of trouble.

Ignore the city slickers on here, they just dont get it emoticon

Have you thought about long range fuel tanks?

Yeah mate, we tow a petrol tanker behind us here in the city LOL emoticon

Don't get me wrong guys, but I can't to see the benefit of having extra 20 litres of fuel in a jerry can with you in the car (on board). OK, so you might save 5 bucks on fuel for a certain distance and then what? How much fuel are you planning to carry on board to last for the entire trip without re-fueling???

In addition to that, the extra weight of fuel on board would offset any savings in terms of fuel cost, as it will impact your fuel consumption.
