If you’re planning a long ride, UTV camping trip, or simply want the piece of mind knowing that you won’t be stuck in the boonies with an empty tank of gas, having a spare fuel pack mounted on your Can-am Defender is definitely a good idea. And at Everything Can-Am Offroad, we’ve got the widest selection of Can-am Defender fuel packs and mounts. From Kolpin fuel packs to Rotopax gas cans and their respective mounting mechanisms, we’ve got the best equipment and accessories for toting that extra fuel to get you where you need to go. Depending on your specific machine, elevation, and ride style, you can expect to get anywhere from 90-130 miles out of a single tank of gas. And while this is more than enough for short afternoon jaunts, for longer stretches (especially those in the deep woods away from any gas stations), packing extra fuel in an external fuel tank is a smart move. And don’t make the mistake of getting an inferior fuel pack, as leakage is extremely dangerous. If your going to cheap out, do so on other aftermarket accessories!
You might be wondering what kind of fuel you should put your Can-am Defender. Unless it has a specific tune and build designed to use ethanol fuel, specifically the high 110 octane e85 fuel, none of the Can-am vehicles have any requirement for any ethanol mix. In fact, ethanol has a much shorter storage life, in everything from cars to yard maintenance equipment to chainsaws and other small engines. it’s a bio fuel to help displace our use of fossil fuels. A “green” filler. For the most part it’s fine, if you’re going through a lot and it doesn’t sit, you’re fine with it. If it will sit for a month or longer, you should definitely add stabilizer with ethanol products. And if you’re thinking about using premium fuel, thing again. The manual says to use 87 octane, there is simply no need for premium. There's zero benefits to using premium in the Can-am Defender engine; it’s not a high compression motor. As a matter of fact some people have experienced starting issues when using premium. Whether it’s in a Koplin gas can, a Rotobax fuel pack, or directly into the fuel tank of your Can-am Defender, regular gas should work for most riders with relatively un-modified machines.
