Fuel tank ...

Does anyone know where I could get a single tank to fit under my console. Console currently has a 70litre tank with dimensions 800mm long x 350mm wide x 300mm high. Humber sometimes fit 2 x such tanks in the console needing to switch between the two, which is fine, but I wonder if anyone has come across a stock plastic fuel tank that would be around 800mm long x 700mm wide and 300-350mm high? There may be scope for a tad more width but not much and custom plastic fuel tanks are a no go cost wise (ie cost of moulds would be £000’s

Otherwise it looks like a stainless or aluminium custom tank if I were to go down the single tank route.

Thanks!

Look for www.shop4tanks.co.uk. They do a range of plastic tanks and one similar to your size requirements. It’s around the 120l capacity

Thanks, the 102 litre tank would fit but the 120 litre tank is 950mm long so probably won’t fit unfortunately. Shame there doesn’t seem to be a 800mm long x 700mm wide tank around!

Fuel tank ...

The alternative stainless / aluminium tank quote has come in at £430, this would be 800mm x 700mm x 300mm and provide 168 litres of capacity.

For £460 (aluminium 3mm) or £475 (stainless 2mm) the tank size could be 800mm long x 800mm wide one end and 700mm the other x 350mm high. This would provide 210 litres of capacity. Any thoughts?

Tek Tanks do a suitable for petrol range. A quick look suggests they don't do an 800x700x300 but they do an 800x350x300 so you'd be back to two tanks.

Tek Tanks don't seem to make custom tanks for petrol.

What about a stainless tank?

Yeah the 800x350x300 is essentially the one I have now at 70 litres. My post above provides quote received for metal tank, no experience of these though - but know they are widely used

Jay Wolf did my custom aluminium tank......work of art

(Spoke to a metallurgist at the time and their advice was ali rather than stainless.)
