Mini Fuel Tank from a Plastic Bottle

The car is used mostly on LPG (cheaper fuel) but gasoline is also needed for the first start. The stock gas tank is also holding the gasoline, but the fuel tends to vanish easily due to splashing and vaporization. So a smaller transparent fuel reservoir was added into the engine compartment. The fuel inlet and fuel return hoses were connected to a plastic bottle and a small breather hole was created unto the cap of the bottle. The gasoline was drawn into the hoses by revving the engine while on LPG than switching to gasoline (from the fuel selector switch) and before the rpm is too low switching back to LPG again to rev up the engine. Repeat this switching and revving a few times and the gasoline is pumped into the carburetor and the engine runs on gasoline from the plastic bottle.
