Fuel Tank Coding

Can anyone solve this puzzle? The MCA 'Coding Bible' seems to say at that a rib has to have a portable tank of less than 27 litres - with no mention of a steel permanent tank (mine's 90 litres under the console) Is this correct ??
Cheers for any answers on this one.

Doesn't it say "Inflatable" has to have.... and in the definitions a rib is not an inflatable.

Presumably you are using petrol, if so you will need a gas detector to check for fuel vapour inside the hull. Rogue waved asked about them about 18 months ago, worth having a read back through the commerical threads.

No problem with stainless steel fitted fuel tanks or plastic ones that can be easily thrown overboard!
Basically no Plastic in the console type or aluminium.

I understand you can put whatever you want in the console as long as it meets iso10088, you have it vented, fuel taps and gas sensor in the enclosed area???
