  • The sidecar is of course the ideal place for the installation of the additional tank. Since motorcycles with a sidecar consume significantly more gasoline than those without, the additional tank under the seat in the sidecar makes sense.
  • On other motorcycles, the tank is usually installed under the seat, under the fairing, or similar to a tank bag on the tank.
  • Additional tanks are custom-made that use otherwise unused storage space and thus achieve an increase in range without blocking the rest of the luggage space. This is the biggest advantage over a petrol can.
  • An additional tank is not a petrol can that is emptied into the main tank of the motorcycle when required. Either it is connected to the petrol line with a T-piece or it is emptied into the main tank via the tank ventilation. The main tank draws as the gasoline from the auxiliary tank to the extent that it is emptied.
