Could this be used with a car? In other words, can this thing be poured into a normal car without making a mess?

How do you carry one of these on your bike and outside of the obvious what are the safety risks? I just bought a Diavel and it has no fuel gauge. When the light comes on I have just over a gallon left so this would be nice piece of mine. Not to mention I could use it for the Harley too.

Soooo envious of that Diavel!

I have a Buell 1125R, and I have the same question. Mostly how on earth this is intended to be transported on the bike, short of duct taping it to the frame :-P

Depends on the car's tank location, I would assume, Probably Yes.
If nothing else a cheap $1 plastic funnel should help with adding it to a vehicle.

It is just looks like a regular steel water bottle used to carry stove fuel for camping, and used by a lot of motorcycle riders as gasoline carrier for emergencies.

Its a little small for extra fuel for a car, would probably just get you a few miles down the road if that.

I ordered 3 of the 1.5L which comes up to a little over 1 Gallon.

Yeah, my little 2013 Sportster has the same issue, Fuel Light comes and I have over 1 Gallon left, but no Fuel Gauge without updating to the new Speedometer cluster and fuel sending unit.

I plan to place mine inside the saddle bag(s).

But some riders carry them strapped on the frame like a water bottle or inside a plastic carrier that is then strapped to the bike.

Main thing I plan to do is protect it from the elements and keep it away from the engine/front of the bike in case of an accident.

Oh, and DON'T OVERFILL IT, FUEL EXPANDS.

Thanks, I didn't think of the funnel until a while after I posted.

I'm thinking two of these should get me to a gas station if need be, and can be permanently stored in the car without fumes.

Sorry but I don't get it. Does it come with the black holder thing? If not, where do you get that?

Tractor Supply. Documentation Holder. Or get a bike water bottle holder. Many ways to mount it up.

Man, you guys have it lucky with fuel lights and you're complaining!
Never had a bike with a fuel light...my FL has a gage and it's great, but when you ride without a gage or light (like most bikes) you should learn to pay attention to your odometer.
My 86 Sportster get's around 80 miles before I need to switch to reserve, which will let me go about another 20 miles. My first bike (79 yamaha) would go about 120 miles before reserve...
In over 18 years of riding I have never pushed it into a gas station.

While I endorse this idea for longer hauls, any fuel bottle from any brand (available at any good sporting goods store) is the same. There was a plastic molded can made at one time that fit in the bottom back corner of Harley hard saddle bags, but they are no longer made.

How do you guys carry anything on your bikes if you have to ask how to carry these? It's an aluminum bottle you're going to fill with gasoline...near the muffler or in a saddle bag is probably not the best place, nor is in a plastic holder on the frame where it will get torn open in a crash.
If you have an adventure bike you have plenty of tie on points. I have a leather water bottle holder for my rear side bar on my FL which will hold one perfectly for example.

I'm not so sure about the no fumes deal... In a motorcycle the bottle would be exposed so it would vent to outdoors, not so much in a car. But I could be wrong

I thought it was too big for a bike water holder... the one on the pictures is the document holder?

It could be, I haven't personally tried, but the black plastic ones are the document holders, typically $6 or so at a tractor supply store.

I think that is what the pictures from the OP are from.

One problem though... Looks like that holder is for the 1 liter bottle and won't work with the 1.5 liter bottle.
