As well as the Beta 300/450RR tank.

ImageSo all in all it has been quite the exciting 5 months.  IMS is working full steam ahead doing what we do best, and that is make tanks and make them well.  But now we have ventured out into new and exciting territory, the side by side, or UTV.  Since it first came out the RZR has dominated the UTV scene, fast, handles great, and can take up to 4 people in style.  But like all race machines it seems to suffer from one major flaw, fairly low MPG.  Now maybe stock it isn’t to bad, but if you are like the guys that work at IMS, you can leave it stock for long.  Engine mods make more speed, but speed burns more gas, and for some of the extreme turbo RZRs out there I have heard of people getting as low as 7.5 MPG.  So what do you do when you only got a 7.5 gallon tank and that kind of MPG, most of us have had to resort to the good ole gas can, or just not ride for very long.  The gas can seems ok, but after seeing pictures like this

Imagekind of makes me think that that extra can of fuel on a bed that can get pretty hot due to exhaust and turbo heat might not be a great idea.  So that just leaves you with short rides.  Let figure this out, if you got a full decked out turbo RZR and get 7.5 MPG and a 7.5 gallon tank that means you have, at best, 56.25 miles of riding.  That means no later then 28.125 miles you have to turn around and head back.  And when you have a machine with that kind of power and speed you are looking at a very very short riding day.  On top of that you can not get any further then 28.125 miles away from camp, not a whole lot of exploring.

There is a third option now coming out, and IMS has it.  We are currently working on a auxiliary tank (so an easy install) that will increase the total fuel capacity of the RZR to 12-13 gallons.  Since the tank will be installed near the stock tank, it is in just as safe a place as the stock tank.  We know people have been asking for this tank for a while and we are pleased to announce that we are finally doing it.  It still has at least 30 days till production but we will keep you posted as to when it is available and the total gallons you will get.  We hope you guys are as excited as we are.

Here are a few pics to help you out.

  1. Would love to see a complete replacement tank for the RZR XP 1000 that increases fuel capacity. Either way, good to see IMS looking into the UTV market!
