So, bearing in mind the regular loose type tanks could be an issue (and as Unlce Al said, may draw in air and damage injectors etc) so, what type of tank could I use? Ebay has plastic tanks for underdeck use....presume these wouldbe okay strapped down securely on deck (can utilise the floor dowls we use for the removeable jockey seats for fixing straps etc)....

Something like this? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FUEL-TANK-PLAS...item1e5eed0301

Any other suggestions appreciated!

Thanks, Dan
i have 42 ltr new one of these at home used for long range cruising but never used, 40.00,,

we have a couple of spare deck tanks as well as the one inbuilt into the consol. Long trips using the deck tanks first so we can throw them in a taxi in next port and get 'em filled. Much easier than getting cans filled. Dont fancy transferring from cans at sea in "inclement" conditions.
