A blue motorcycle tank that has rusted over the years. A yellow hazard decal indicates that it is highly flammable. The motorcycle tank is often found near motorcycles, especially in raider camps. It is also often accompanied by a motorcycle handbrake; Incidentally, whenever one finds the two together, one should always pick up the handbrake first - picking up the gas tank will often cause the handbrake to clip through the floor.
In Fallout 3, it is one of the four components needed to make a flaming melee weapon known as a Shishkebab. The tank can also be used as Rock-It Launcher ammunition. It has no known uses in Fallout: New Vegas.
