Ah, I had seen you had built your own tanks. But dose this NPG resin you speak of also stand up to petrol? I have been reading on the web that if it for diesel then it is relatively easy and most resins will do the job. But the “new” petrol has got ethanol or the likes in it and this is what can cause the issue.

Any pointer where one can get the NPG stuff from ?

to tell the truth I made a start at trying to work out the volume, gave up, I then started to look for a sheet of waterproof some thing that could be used so I could just poor a known volume of water in to see how large it is. Could not find said suitable sheet. So I am working on the “it looks enough” stood there with a beer in one hand and a pencil behind the ear.
