Has anybody installed an Auxiliary fuel tank with Hannigan Sidecar where did you put it and how does it operate?

Not Hannigan, but just I carry a 1.25gal gas can in the trunk of my DMC.

I can only get 150 miles out of an tank
Perfect... I am thirsty and need a stretch after a buck and a half...

I’ve been doing this but the folks I ride with don’t like stopping
Me and whoever i might ride with have No Place to go, and All Day to get there.... Nothing to Prove..

We often slow down to 40MPH to Smell the Crops in the Field!!!

2018 crossing USA thru Canada and back to Calif, I started each day at 2 and 1 gallons and a 1 liter fuel containers. premium etc in the sidecar. Much of my riding time was calculating fuel and stops with my garmin. Id use 2 gallons early, Left the 1 as a reserve and the liter as a forlorn hope,

I myself am a little concerned about this. Just bought a 2016 Scout and can only make it around 110 miles before the fuel light comes on. I’m planning on adding a Hannigan hack in the spring. Even my Ural Retro could go ~ 170 miles, bit it also had a 5 gal fuel tank.

Yup you will lose fuel range to weight /drag /wind which type of hannigan you adding ? , if its the hannigan heritage its a heavy beast.it halved my chief fuel range. Still its worth it. 100 miles is good tme to stop coffee up and check route and road conditions ahead.

Arrow Elite. It is a slightly smaller sidecar they built specifically for mid-size bikes like the Scout. I'm with you on the regular stops.

i had 4 urals 2005, 2012, 2012, 2014. Hubert the legend was a smart guy,
he had a larger gas tank made.

While riding I have pondered what it would take to make a decent looking tank for the Scout that would add 2 gallons to it. That would match the Ural and should have comparable range.
