Where to carry additional fuel Tank?

I would like to carry a 5 liters fuel tank for a long ride into the desert.
Where is a safe place to position it?
Any suggestion?
many thanks!

In the dakar rally i belive they put extra fuel on the nerf bar. I am not sure if it is a kit or something completely custom. Likely the latter.

I recently tried to put a 2 gallon tank on my 6 pack rack at the dunes in UT. Used some ratchet straps to hold it down. It worked great until the gas tank split apart at the molding seams due to too much strap tension. Next time I’m going to try a product called Gas Bag from Giant Loop. Expensive but seems capable.
