Auxillary fuel cell

I currently run a 5 gallon auxillary tank, gravity fed to a T at the front of my tank.
From what I'm reading everyone says that you can't do that with fuel injection because of a pressurized tank.
I'm confused as I'm currently doing it.

The tanks aren't pressurized, but they are sealed. On late scooters venting the tank will set a code.

Not sure what flavor of scooter were talking about here, so I can't comment on the tee at the front of the tank. But on later scooters, if the spare fuel is above the level of the existing tank vent valve, there is a huge risk of venting fuel through the canister.

Now I gotta ask, why do you need all of that fuel?

The continued quest to ride farther without stopping...
Also just picked up a sidecar rig and looks like it's only going to get 25 to 28 mpg
