    I can find all kinds of pics and drawings of the Tanika set up but does anyone have any pics or drawing of the robin subaru set up

    I guess you mean you want to install a second auxillary tank? If so, shouldn't it be just the same as with a Tanaka?

    I attached a 1.5 L auxilliary tank under my Tanaka 32cc. It extended my range to 80 miles without refueling, which is fabulous. The Tanaka stock tank just isn't big enough.

    if you have a staton friction drive. The tank from a Honda gxh50 and its oem mounting hardware work great.


    if you have a gebe setup then daves motors sells an auxiliary tank that can be mounted on the steel straps.


    hope that helps.

    perfect, it seems pretty simple, I have the tank and cover from daves and just picked up the tee,s today, which tank will it suck from first and when one gets empty will it suck air.

    Vent the aux. tank

    If you vent the aux.tank (which you should), it uses that tank first. And will not suck air.

    Well actually it will suck air.....when you run out of gas!

    I just dont want to fill up every morning before work, I see what your saying I should fill the main tank, I only had a little in it and it ran out and would not suck from the lower tank.

    You should fill the existing tank, and seal its vent.

    The fuel line from the existing tank remains in place. The recirculation line from the existing tank gets connected to the fuel line of the auxiliary tank. Finally, to close the loop, the recirculation line of the auxiliary tank gets connected to the carb recirculation hose barb. Ref the attached image, below.

    Fuel gets pumped in to the carb from the existing tank - this reduces pressure in the existing tank, which then pulls fuel in from the auxiliary tank to keep it full. The recirculation line from the carb pumps any unused fuel back into the auxiliary tank.

    BTW - Staton sells a 96 oz. auxiliary tank.

    Why bother keeping the small original tank at all?

    Why not just get a larger tank of the appropriate size and not deal with the extra lines and fittings and sealed caps and such?

    I am sure there must be a few folks out there with a need for two tanks, but I suspect that the majority would be better off with a single large tank.

    Simple is good!

    I agree simple is always better but, no matter how big of a tank you put on... you could always have the xtra 26 oz of capacity. Its not like it takes up any room... and I dont like the way it looks w/out the oem tank.

    silvaire, thanks again for eho35... its the one I put on the friction drive specialized mountain bike you see above.

    I like to keep the original as the 'reserve' tank. When it starts to empty, then, I top it off and fill the big tank.
