Here's another perspective from a bracket, index , and open comp racer. Way back in the 90's went we made the move to a fuel cell we decided on a 12 gallon. We were looking forward into the future. A future that included double entries and running multiple classes at the same event. Also we eventually intended on switching to alcohol which uses more fuel than gas. At some tracks I run at when we are down to the quarter finals they go into round robin racing and you have to come right back to the lanes if you win the previous round. Now times that by 2 if you are double entered or running multiple classes. The last thing you have time for is to stop for fuel and it's nice not to have to worry if you have enough fuel. Another scenerio , say your down to the semi final round at 3 cars and you have the by run into the final. You have been in the left lane all day and been dead on in the left all day . You watched the other two cars in the semi final run and the winner was in the left lane just like what you have been running. Some people lane choice matters and some it doesn't. Me personally I prefer the left but I don't feel I can't win from the right. As a matter of fact I won 2 final round last year from the right when I was running left all day. At my home track first car back in the left or right lane gets that lane . So if all the cars still in competition want the left lane the first car gets left and second car gets right and so on . Some guys or girls even in round robin mode will stop back at there pit to fuel up. They risk loosing lane choice. But it may not be important to them. Just one more senerio to have extra fuel. If I could fit a 15 gallon cell in my trunk I would. My trunk is functional , keeping as much as possible in one organized spot. Fuel cell, 2 batteries, nitrous bottle, and on board air compressor for airing tires in lanes when you're down in the rounds in round robin and bypass your pit and go straight back to the lanes. Just my 2 cents , well maybe 4 cents worth lol. Just another racers perspective.
