There was a thread sometime ago about flex fuel tanks. Tried to find it but had no luck. Can any one remember where you can buy some durable 50 or 100 ltr flex tanks competitively priced?
Compass, WestMarine and the like sell them but they are so damn expenssive!!

Paul - have a look at the Seaflex site although they don't mention it they apparently make the RNLI bladder tanks.

According to Ribraff, Paul Tilley who I can personally recomend makes them which I didn't know! (you learn something every day!) He is registered on here so maybe a PM will get his attention, either that or PM me and I will let you have his number

As mentioned by Alan Priddy, they are difficult to fill, have a shorter life than other tanks, and are expensive!

All the best in your search,

by the way the info came from This thread

No, dead easy to fill... but a sod to empty into the main tank
