I wonder what they will come up with next, maybe a cover like this for the radio-box. That would be cute.

Seriously that is just ridiculous! So instead of the tank getting dirty the cover now will and then whats the point. So the tank stays clean but if the cover is always on it and it keeps getting dirty anyway then who is gonna see the tank itself.

Just another "OPTION" or add on to dress it up , and once it gets real dirty you could give it too the wife to clean , and as for seeing the amount of fuel ? i myself 90% of the time run my tank right down before i bring it back in so im not concerned about seeing the level

will the bracket that holds the tank in place fit over it ?? im thinking the added thickness might not be a good thing.

easier to wipe clean a plastic tank than clean/remove a piece of cloth that restricts the view of fuel amount
