73 Litre Fuel Tank TT-5663 750 x 390 x 290

Tek Tanks sell petrol tanks from their Series C tanks range. I'm not sure what length and height you have but the one above could be suitable.

I think that I will go for the 70 ltr Tektank 80x35x30 there is a lip round the top of the jockey console which I'm sure that I can cut 0.5 cm off each side so that it will drop in.

I spoke to Mike Whitham and he agreed that that would be the best and cheapest way..... if all else fails Mike will cut out the console fit a tank and glass it back in 👍Just hope that the first option works.

Would it be best to use a jigsaw or could it be filed down I wonder......

I would cut out using Bosch multi tool thats what I use it leaves a better cut and finer if you only want a smidge off .

Cheers

That's a shame so you need 10 MM off each side looks doable and you could make it back up during the winter if it bothered you best of look with it pics when it's in must be others thinking the same.

Cheers

You are unlikely to get plastic made to measure for petrol - I went through all that a couple of years ago and ended up with a custom made stainless steel - the choice for petrol is only S/S or aluminium. You can get plastic custom for diesel only.
