Interesting fuel set up, dose your rib not have an internal tank?

And why dose it look like the tank connector sticks out of the console half way up?

Was the Sampson your own design or theirs?

The Rib has a 160ltr tank in the console but the extra tanks are for going on a long trip offshore to give another 100ltr capacity allowing a 250nm range.

The connector goes into the console so all the aux tanks still go through the fuel filter system.

I like the additional fuel tanks and the option of a plug in through the fuel filter.
Any chance of a close up picture of the front and the back of this item?

Many thanks
Lee

Have you stashed another 2 tanks somewhere ? from the pics it looks like you have 2 x 25l tanks strapped in. Nice thinking on the connectors - must mean a very clean & simple to change tanks on the move .
