Who make Humbers fuel tanks?

Apparently I can get a 70L fuel tank into my standard Humber console to replace my 2x25L tanks. I've looked around and nobody seams to do one to my required dimensions. Those are :
Wide: 30 cm
Length: 60 cm
Height: 28 cm

Are they made especially for Humber or is there a manufacturer that does these as standard?

Thanks for your help.

by my calculations those dimensions would allow for about a 50L tank....

where did you hear about the 70L tank?

I would but they sell the tanks individually at 350 or 400 for the 91L version. I find that a bit steep.

Just do a search for 70l plastic tanks. I had one fitted to my console and it was the same one Humber would have charged me about 2-3 times to buy with the boat.
I can't remember offhand which manufacturer it was but it wasn't anything out of the ordinary or weird.
