    Using oil tank as a reserve tank.

    Allot of you have removed the oil pump and converted to premix.

    Has anyone connected the oil tank to the fuel tank, so u can use it as a reserve ?

    Many people have bypassed the fuel selector knob and gone directly to the carbs straight from the tank. If you had this type of set up, how about connecting the bottom of the oil tank to the fuel selector knob? In this way you could control when you allowed the fuel in the oil tank to drain into the fuel tank. You could tie the outlet of the fuel selector knob to the return line from the carbs.

    The only potential issue I see is that both oil and fuel tank have pressure regulators. It would be great if the oil tanks pressure regulator were higher than the fuel tank pressure regulator. In this way, fuel would not have any problem depressureing into the fuel tank from the oil tank.

    Oil tank to fuel selector knob inlet to selector knob outlet to fuel return line to the fuel tank.

    Seems simple enough.

    We used to do this with stand-ups. Connect the oil tank line to the vent on the gas tank and use the vent tube on the oil tank as your new gas tank vent. This way you don't use it as a reserve because the oil tank will empty first, but you get a little extra range out of it.
