A Seafoam suggestion. 5 Years, 7 Months ago  
I don't know why it took me so long to see it..well I have a good idea, but it hurts me to think about it

While buying some awhile back, I noticed they sell it by the gallon also, at a pretty good discount to the bottles.
Since I don't drive my truck hardly at all now, I noticed I was having some issues with it( I really like the real time fuel monitors). The Seafoam cured it, so now I use it in My bike, truck, and the wifes vehicle, the boat, the lawn mower, and diesel gennie.
O'reilly's, had it for $51.00 a gallon. I just refill the smaller 1 pint bottles now.
It was a savings of a little over 12 bucks.

Get the gallons myself. Best way to go cost wise per ounce. Savings of .15 cents per oz when I buy the gallon. Pick it up at Advance

Re:A Seafoam suggestion. 5 Years, 7 Months ago  
Great idea, I never did the cost comparison myself but have seen the gallon jugs.

Keeping with the SeaFoam theme here: I have used the old empty bottles to carry some emergency fuel in the saddle bags on long rides in the past. I use two MSR camping fuel bottles for this purpose but the SeaFoam bottles worked great. You just shouldn't keep gasoline in them for longer than a single ride because of the expansion of the fuel and no vent on the bottle, I would just dump the bottle into the tank at the end of the ride.

Keeping gas in the saddlebags. Awesome. I start to sweat a little when riding thru rural Virginia the first couple times, until I planned my gas stops at known gas stations. I've never actually run out, and don't really want to either. What a great idea!

With a metal can, we (US Army) always just put a dent in the can that the expansion could easily overcome to keep the stuff from spewing. Works better than dead airspace!

Not much of a discount, but as Much as you can use it for it never sits long. Bought a gallon a while back and just used the last little bit so its time for a new one.
