I have the same problem with fuel tanks on my N type - I have the original rectangular Stuart one but it just looks a bit poor on the brackets I've made. I think I'm going to switch it for a round one that I can mount to it's water tank, and then will use the Stuart one on the R3LY that I'm currently working on.

Best regards,
Scott

This is the best option I have at the moment, it cleaned up pretty well.
Just don't like the central seam or the end cap mounts.

For mixing 2 stroke I put 100ml of oil in a 5 litre jerry can then add 5 litre of petrol at the garage, give the can a good shake before use and you're set.

That's the badger! And the advice I was given was to give the can a good shake before each and every engine tank filling thereafter, in case the oil starts to settle out when the can is standing idle between rallies.

Not sure if that actually happens, but I doubt it will do any harm... unless of course the inside of the can is contaminated with rust/condensation/sediment, etc. In which case you're in trouble anyway!

I think re-shaking before filling at the start of a rally is bit of a waste of energy.
It's just been shaken about in a van (or trailer) for an hour or so

I doubt the fuel and oil mix would get shaken up in a moving vehicle because the car will be cruising at a steady rate with the can and contents in relation to the car stationary, any acceleration or deceleration will move the liquid in one direction only so no vigorous slopping about and any vertical moments will be damped to not a lot due to the cars inbuilt damping system.

Maybe, living in the countryside the local roads don't get a lot of use, I drove 420 miles today on the uk's finest and certainly didnt get shaken around enough to mix a liquid.

To right, obviously doesn't live in Bedfordshire, must be closer to the moon

I though the roads round here were rough, but having driven 400 odd miles today (essex to leeds and back) they seem just as bad everywhere.

When on long journeys I carry a bottle of drink in a cup holder and the liquid very rarely if at all jumps around enough to mix itself.
