Certainly must be nice if you can afford a new rib so you can have a nice large inboard tank and maybe a console with an inbuilt tank to so there is not need to carry loads of fuel cans on deck.

I carry these two 20 ltr containers and this orange funnel which is ribbed (not for extra pleasure) but creates a vortex so it pours through a lot easier.

But I still wouldn't fancy having to top up my main tanks in the middle of a rough Irish sea. so like yourself I am hoping someone on here can come up with a better solution for peeps like us who don't have large under floor tanks

I'd rather be looking at it than for it The inboard tanks give me about 120nm range. Another 80l in cans & a top up when I get there will get me back nice & comfy.

in-consol built in 90 litre tank plus a changeover valve ito a fuel line pigtail that grows outa the side of the consol thru the same 'ole as the control cables from the throttle/gearshift box. If ya dont need it its not in the way, on a longer trip two 30 litre tanks that fit the pigtail connector. One tank fits snugly between the consol and the anchor locker ( the boat was specced up with that measurement) and the other can go right up the bow or behind the back pod depending on where I want the ballast. Simple matter to change from one tank to the other. Use the deck tanks first then on arrival at a distant venue there is not usually an issue with carrying or at the filling station with purpose made fuel tanks as opposed to jerrycans.

Could do to place two in the corners of the transom but hard to find tanks that sit vertically rather than flat and horizontal.

Any one seen any, my corner space is about 23cm which is great for a lot of the tanks but that is there hight when in the horizontal position.

I suppose I could just re-tube the tank so it hangs down and reaches the bottom when stood upright?
