IMS Plastic tank question

I'm going to ask rather than look it up, do these tanks really hold more fuel than my stock 06 tank? If so how much more?

Thanks,

Ard

Can you use all 7.2 gallons or is some of it below the petcock?

I'm trying to decide if I can get it done by strapping a pair of MSR fuel bottles on-board will give me the same edge.

For long hauls I'm considering one of those flat gas tanks that I could strap onto the luggage rack. They hold 3.8 or so and sell around $100 that might be the way I go. Sometimes gas is along way off.
