Aux fuel cell plan.
I had an idea and wanted to get some feedback. There are alot of smart folks who read here and i'm looking for their opinions.
i've found a decent little aux fuel cell (about 2 1/4 gal) and i wanted to install it on the tail rack. it's not a permanent installation but rather a option for certain rides where fuel re-supply may be an issue. as well as an emergency supply for other bikers who may have mis-calculated their fuel supply.
i'm thinking that plumbing the aux cell into the bikes fuel system is abit too involved for my needs and thought, if needed, i would manually transfer fuel from the aux cell to the main tank. i had the idea to use one of those small emergency air compressors (the little ones that plug into your cigarette lighter) and plug it into the fuel cell vent (on the top of the cell). using a shut-off valve or quick disconnect fitting on the cell out port and a piece of fuel line or tubeing to get to the main fuel tank filler port.
turn on the compressor, apply a head pressure, push the fuel out and into the main tank.
i might need to control the air pressure being applied to the tank. not sure how strong those little compressors are. another option is to use a small tire pump and manually create the pressure.
can anyone offer any suggestions or comments?
thx for your time everyone.
