Hi, I'm new here and wanted to say this is a great place for folks like me who are not knowledgeable
when it comes to ATVs. I hope you don't mind but have a question to ask. I see in the pictures mounted
on the front racks of a lot of ATV what appears to be a thin gas can? If so where can I get one. If not a gas can what are they? Specifically, I was in the ATV Trip Photos web site.
Again, sorry if I'm out of line here and thanks again for making this forum the best!

Welcome to the forum. This is a great place for info. The fuel pack you are refering to costs about $75. Pretty steep for a 3 gal gas can if you ask me.
There are other gas can carriers that you can get that bolt to your front or back rack. I got mine from The Sportsmans Guide for $30 a piece. They also come in different sizes, 1 1/2, 2 1/2 and 5 gal.

I have built many 2 gal holders for friends and also to sell....its held in place with 2 pins and will hold a can or a soft sided 6 pack cooler.
Here is one setup I built for a good buddys King Quad.

starky I havent sold one in a while.....but I was selling the holder.....gas can......and a soft sided 6 pack ice chest with bungees for $80 for the single front set up.
As for the dual rack set up with the weather proof plastic box with the diamond plate I would have to get around $300 for that and it would come with the 2 gas cans but you would have to get your own ice chests.....and I'll be working on one that has the box ....and room for 4 gas cans also (still on the drawing board) The gas cans are all 2 gal 8 oz cans with screw tight vents and nozzles.
I only have 2 cases of the cans left......I need to find someplace that still carrys them and order some more. The cans and Ice chests fit the same holder perfect.

Look real good just hope you don't run into anything with that on on the front of you grizz :)

I know I spent the money a few years back and bought the flat fuel pack, so far I like it and happy with it, got it from Rocky Mountain ATV I belive.

The can is real tough....if you run dead on into something your not paying close enough attention to where your going!;)
(Have 30,000 plus miles on the single can system just between me and my close friends who have them.....never had an issue with one yet.)

lol Kodiak660 hate it when stuff tends to jump out in front of you :)

The only thing I dont like about the Fuel Pack is it don't vent at all so in the sun and heat it will tend to swell up a little and you have to let the air out sometimes

I built the front can holder back in the summer of 99 for camping trips on my 2000 kody.....I have a tamarack front box and a big tamarack rear box and needed a place for gas and I didnt want to have to unstrap my front box to get to a flat gas can.
