Most Honda Talon riders are so focused on riding that they rarely pay any attention to their machine’s mileage. And while you’re sure to get limitless smiles per gallon in the Honda Talon, as far as fuel efficiency goes, you can expect to get between 100 and 140 miles out of a single tank. However, results may vary based on how aggressive you drive, the terrain you’re driving over, the accessories you’re running, and a handful of other factors. So regardless if you’re usually on wooded trails or dusty back roads, when you’re miles from the nearest gas station, bringing along extra fuel is always a good idea. And for this, Honda Talon fuel packs and Honda Talon fuel pack mounts are essential.
That being said, we wouldn’t recommend using just any old Honda Talon fuel pack. Due to the flammability of gasoline, most riders choose to go with tough fuel containers that are mountable and able to overcome the challenges of the trail. Rotopax gas cans and their respective Honda Talon gas can mounts are a great way to bring along spare fuel during rides. They offer various fuel pack sizes — from one gallon fuel packs to four gallon fuel packs — and their fuel packs are rotationally molded using a unique three-layer design for unmatched strength and durability. Not only do Rotopax fuel packs for the Honda Talon exceed EPA mandates, but they also comply with the stringent requirements of the California Research Board. This means that they’ll never leak, outgas, or let out a single drop of petrol unless it's into the internal gas tank of your Honda Talon R or Honda Talon X!
Like Rotopax, the Honda Talon fuel packs and Honda Talon external gas cans by Kolpin Outdoors are also safe, reliable, and easy to mount. Unlike standard jerry cans, Kolpin fuel packs are designed for off-road use, and are made to fit their universal, frame-mounted fuel pack brackets. Even though Kolpin gas cans and fuel transport containers are leak-proof, fixing them to your Honda Talon via brackets and utility gear rail systems provides an added element of safety. Because they are held firm with proper mounts, you know that they won’t tip over, slosh around, or fly out of your bed on steep inclines, bumpy trails, or rutted-out roads. Your Honda Talon fuel capacity is limited, so if you want to expand your range, the best course of action is to use a Honda Talon fuel pack with an appropriate Honda Talon fuel pack mount!
The uses for Honda Talon fuel cans go far beyond increasing the range of your UTV. If you need to transport fuel for storage at your hunting lease, fuel packs are the way to go. Or if someone you know ran out of gas in their car on the highway, you can use your Honda Talon fuel pack for that as well. Many Honda Talon gasoline fuel pack systems come with funnels for an easy and spill-less pouring action. Others are molded with strategically-designed slits through which you can thread tie-down straps, depressions / indentations into which mounts fit flushly, and multiple handles for convenient handling / carrying. When you’re running on fumes both figuratively and literally, nothing can get you back up and going like a Honda Talon fuel pack!
If you need a fuel pack to keep you moving for some consecutive 10-hour riding days, we can hook you up. Or if you want a better way to transport fuel to your in-field farm equipment, a 30L fuel tank jerry can should set you straight. Although it’s true that the Honda Talon has a smaller tank than most other side-by-sides, it does get a greater MPG than similarly-sized vehicles. It’s also true that your MPG will depend on how and where you ride, and you don’t have to be a Boyscout to recognize the importance of preparedness. You may not need to carry spare gas in the trails of TN when you’re never too far from a gas station. But if you’re in the deserts of Moab and riding 100+ miles without a soul in sight, a fuel pack or two will be required. Extend your rides, go further, and don’t be forced to end early because of fuel restrictions. With a Honda Talon fuel pack and mount from Everything Honda Offroad, you’ll be ready to go the distance no matter how deep you ride!
