Stainless Steel Fuel Tanks

Hi Guys, can anybody recomend a company for either bespoke or off the shelf stainless (316) steel fuel tanks, I'm looking for around 150lts. The idea is to have the tank as a spare with a transfer pump to the main tank, and will be a permenant install.

Jay Wolfe Metalwork make good quality tanks, which are properly pressure-tested.

Bear in mind you should be using several ISO standards for the installation, to prevent fire or explosion. In particular, the fuel hoses need to meet ISO 7840 and the tank space ventilation needs to meet ISO 10088.

I have used alumacraft for years

They have made loads of tanks and none have ever failed!

They do a fantastic job, all tested and certified , you just email a sketch with what you want and sizes and after a couple of weeks the tank arrives. They are fantastic value as well
