Portable tank with no gauge?

Does such a thing exist?

My 22L tank's gauge window decided to part company with the tank recently. As the gauge is about as much use as a chocolate teapot at the best of times, I am thinking of replacing the tank (and any subsequent failures of the 30L tanks) with a gauge-less one.

not necessarily, more the packaging space that;s important - for example I can sit 2 x Hulk 30L tanks side by side between my A- frame braces. The 22L tucks in under the seat like I suspect the way it was designed for the 5 gallon metal tanks that were the norm 25 years ago.

Idelaly like to keep some of it portable for refuelling trips without the aid of the trailer!

tell me more.....

We do a 24 liter one, but have not got one here at the moment so I cant give you the dimensions just yet. 22 quid though.

We supply a fair few 42 liter tanks as a removable tank (no quay side petrol here), any bigger and it becomes a bit of a job. They measure 50x35x30cm. 65.

Hole is 32 square!

I assume for the pic that the 34 is width and not height? I could probably open the hole vertically, but not horizontally.
