[This copy was taken mainly from this week’s The Watercraft Journal’s 2020 Top 10 Christmas Gifts For Jet Skiers feature article. Read it in its entirety HERE. –Ed.] As personal watercraft have evolved into super-comfortable, feature-laden machines, more and more enthusiasts are using their PWC to explore new places and ride further distances. To help them go further, The Watercraft Journal’s Long Hauler Auxiliary Fuel System Kit increases your PWC’s fuel range by upwards of 85-percent (depending on model). Engineered so that the least mechanically-savvy could install it in a matter of 10-to-15 minutes using common hand tools, installation requires zero cutting or drilling, or permanent modifications, and is 100% reversible.
Using the mechanical vacuum created in the factory fuel cell to organically siphon fuel from the auxiliary tank mounted on the rear deck, this system works on all All 2004-and-up 4-stroke Kawasaki JetSkis (16.4 gal. and 20.6 gal. fuel tanks); all 2004-and-up 4-stroke Yamaha WaveRunners (15.8 gal. and 18.5 gal. fuel tanks); all 2002-through-2009 4-stroke Honda Aquatrax (16.6 gal. and 18.5 gal. fuel tanks); and all 2003-through-2011 4-stroke Sea-Doos (15.9 gal. fuel tanks). Changes to the Sea-Doo fuel pickups in 2012 require major changes to the factory fuel system, which would void warranties and put riders at risk, something we didn’t want to do.
The kit consists of 9 pieces: a special-designed stainless steel, powder coated rack from Kool PWC Stuff, featuring a patented Z-bar adjustable base lined with Hydro-Turf padding; a stainless steel double-hooked turnbuckle; a USCG-certified 12-gallon auxiliary fuel tank featuring a ventilated locking gas cap, internal pickup and fuel level gauge; two ratchet straps; 10-feet of non-EFI 50psi-rated fuel line fitted with a brass 5/16-inch hose barb; and two zip-ties to secure the fuel line.
Available for sale now, the Long Hauler Kit is sold exclusively through The Watercraft Journal’s online store for $650 USD (with flat rate shipping calculated at checkout). Simultaneously, a video installation instructions has been published to The Watercraft Journal’s YouTube channel so you can see a step-by-step tutorial on how to install your Long Hauler Kit. It’s the most comprehensive, easy-to-install auxiliary fuel system on the market – and it’s been proven by The Watercraft Journal HERE.
