Taller Fuel Tanks

Hi,

Im looking into changing the console layout and im struggling to find small (around 40l) fuel tanks that would fit under jockey seats. There seems to be lots of lower ones to go under the deck or square ones to go under bench seats.

Other than the Barrus tanks that have been mentioned on here loads does anyone know of any?

Ideally id like to have 2 that would fit under single jockey seats, they are going to be permenantly installed so i dont want portable.

All help appreciated.

Ed

I think that you will struggle to fit more than 22ltr tanks under your jockey seats, the problem usually is the opening at the top of the seats which is narrower than the base because it tapers, if it's a double jockey then you could fit 2 tanks. The other solution would be to (if screwed down) lift up your jockey console and fit a 80/90ltr tank and then re fit the console over the top. Some pics of your rib might help to give some better idea of size etc.

The current layout of the rib is with a single 70l fuel tank under the main console. As i have twin engines, i ideally want 2 40l tanks and run each engine from its own source.

Im going to have the rib re decked, and looking to get a cruising style console and 2 single jockey pods rather than the inline setup i have now. Just looking into the options.

It's 5.5m and rated to twin 70's, but it goes well enough as it is.

I have seen some 42l tanks on eBay, and I'm hoping I can have some seat pods made to fit over, but the taller they are the less wasted space I'll have.
