Fuel Tank

Are there any considerations when buying a larger fuel tank - we currently have 2 40 litre tanks and thinking of buying one 90l and keeping one of the 40l as spare.

Are there issues with weight distribution - or would it make little difference



Sometimes my mind not only wanders ..... it leaves completely

I guess the advantage of two tanks is that if one gets holed or ingests some salt water you can swap the hose across & carry on.

Also if they're portable tanks (tho' I assume as they are 40s that they are fixed?) two smaller tanks are a d@mn sight easier to carry!

I'm running with 2 hulk 30Ls at the transom & a 25L under the seat.
