EXTRA TANK IS GOOD PLAN FOR LONG TOUR

Washington Times-Herald
December 31, 1922


A tourist who was anxious to make good time over a county not too plentifully supplied with filling stations installed a second fuel tank in the rear seat of his car.  This second tank, salvaged from a wrecked car, was of standard type and was mounted on two stout brackets, screwed to the rear seat frame.  Strap irons were placed about the tank and also secured, and the vent on the underside was provided with an extension pipe and a valve which could be padlocked.

Under ordinary driving conditions the second tank was kept empty, but at certain times this, too, was filled.  When the lower tank had been drained and there was no filling station handy, a short length of rubber hose was slipped over the valve nozzle of the upper tank and the end inserted into the mouth of the lower.
