Made of tough cross-link polyethylene, the same materials as many factory fuel tanks, the ingenious design of AEV’s Fuel Caddy seamlessly integrates with the AEV Tire Carrier and takes full advantage of the unused space both inside the wheel of the spare tire and just behind it. The result is 10.2 gallons of secure and nearly invisible fuel storage. The high mounting position isolates the Fuel Caddy from trail impacts and makes it ideally suited for gravity fed deployment into the main tank. A fully vented, OE-quality cap means radical changes in elevation are no problem and fill-ups are fast. A built-in step allows for easy access to roof racks. Will accomodate up to a 37” tire. The AEV Fuel Caddy is proudly made in Detroit, Michigan.
How do I get the fuel out? Do I remove the tank?
The Fuel Caddy is designed to be a semi-permanent installation; there is no need to remove the tank to use it. We include a Super Siphon to remove the fuel in a convenient way that is easy, fast and clean. Best of all its simple and reliable and can be used in all sorts of emergency situations, it’s a great tool to have on board.
How does the Super Siphon work?
The Super Siphon is simply a ball check valve located in the end of a length of tubing. To use it just put it in the Fuel Caddy and give it a few quick shakes, it couldn’t be easier.
Is the Fuel Caddy safe?
Fuel is inherently dangerous, there is no way around that, so special care should be used with the Fuel Caddy. While we have taken every precaution, like building the tank out of super strong cross-linked polyethylene and locating the tank up out of the way of most crashes, we still caution to only use the Fuel Caddy as a temporary storage solution. Proper use would be to empty the fuel caddy as soon as possible after a trip or expedition, and to store empty. Other precautions that should be taken include using eye protection when transferring fuel from the Fuel Caddy, and to always touch the gas pump nozzle to the fill port of the fuel caddy while filling to reduce the dangers of static electricity build up
