I've never seen the price vary much....they're all about the same.

Breese lawn and garden has a ebay store and they were selling them for $65.00 and the mounts were $35.00. Good price on the packs not so good on the mounts. I guess they have to make there money some where. Our Western Power Sports rep was telling me that if they get caught selling them it's a $10,000 fine! Same goes for the dealer.. :shock:

I got mine at northern tool. they come withsome velcro straps to hold them to your quad. works good with a metal rack like mine, not so good on the new polaris rack system had to use lots of bungees on the new 700. http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/ ... allpartial

The red cans are not CARB approved. the white WATER packs are legal.

California is SO WHACKED.

Those semi-opaque white Jugs for gas...aren't supposed to have "gas".

BLOW ME.


And those "spill proof" nozzles...do nothing BUT spill.

The white packs are rated for water and not gas. I think there some places in California that you can't spill water ether :lol: :lol: :lol:

it is all a conspiracy by the gas companies to make us buy more gas cause we spill that crap everywhere when using their spill proof devices. . . some asshole needs to get a can of gas shoved where his mother never kissed him cause of ths stupid idea of spill proof nozzles. . .

I've never spilled fuel using the old gas types however, have endless stains on my driveway using the new ones..... I get most of my spills pulling out the damn nozzle..... It's filled with gas.
