400 litres is a lot of weight of fuel! Saying that, if I remember correctly my Ballistic would have 2x225 litre tanks if it was rigged with twins.

I'm pretty sure all I have is 225 litres.

i have a 91ltr and a 40ltr set up,on a 150

my Atl 21 was a twin 120ltr set up, running a 200 2 stroke V6 merc, was good enougth for me but long distances may be an issue depending how its used, in anger or not,

allways prefferd the option of carrying spare fuel as opposed to a huge bloody tank taking up so much space, and the weight if you did fill it christ No. and the cost

My tank holds 120lt, so just enough to get to Ireland and back if sensible with throttle, that counts me out.
I agree with Nugent and just carry extra if neccessary.

errr...in my 5 metre, fitted with a 90hp, .... 200 litres, under the deck is all fuel tank.
thinking about another tank for the suicide seat so I dont have all my fuel (eggs) in one basket....its an odd size - only 220mm wide, 380mm high, 710mm long. may get another 50 litres in a tank that size if I can find one.

Its a hell of a lot if its on deck and not under deck - must do odd things to the handling ?
