Inboard fuel tank

I would like to install a under deck fuel tank (petrol).

The space I have is 300mm wide x 1000mm long x ?mm depth. I am unsure of the depth because I have not yet cut the required hole in the deck, I am putting this off until I get a tank.

I think the depth will be about 300mm to 400mm.

I prefer stainless (costly?) but plastic will do.

Anyone got something like this lying around?

I am near Salisbury, willing to collect in southern England. Also happy to pay postage for right item.

Cheers to all

Ian Wilson

If it's suitable, I've a spare Stainless tank 300mm x 300mm x 1m that I took out of my Searider .
I think it's about 90 Litres capacity.
I took it out when I rebuilt the console and needed removable tanks.

Looks pretty much perfect

Do you have a price in mind, and where are you?

Cheers

Oops, after doing some proper measurements turns out I got the size wrong.

I need a tank 300 W x 180 H x 1000 L (mm). This size should give about 60 litres.

Plastic or SS either will do.

Any one got one looking for a good home?

Thanks for looking

Ian Wilson
