    Auxiliary Gas Tank in XRS Questions

    This is a picture of my Tank. Is there any possibility of adding a Gauge on top? Also I cannot get any gas from this tank to the engine. When I switch to the auxiliary the engine quits.

    That's a saddle tank I never saw , my old boat had plastic. To prime it put the selector switch to the saddle and pump the primer bulb till its hard, it's probably in the rear cranking battery compartment . One way to watch the level when the tank is full reset fuel used on the merc monitor when you get to 8-9 gallons used switch back to main tank. I imagine it's a 10 or 11 gallon saddle you don't want to run dry at speed that's a lot of water coming over the back.

    I would test the fuel capacity with your merc monitor first. Once you know your fuel burnt capacity, then use that mark to switch tanks.

    Call Tom at Bullet he can put you in the right direction , pretty sure it's the same one as in the main tank.
