if you dont wanna fight with the installation of tank deckfill, hoses, breather, fueltank gauge and sender vs topside tanks are so usefull
have a look at scepter topside tank with a capacity of 45 lt. moller topside tanks are also simmilar.
ideas depend on your deck layout and space
topside tanks are safe to be used under sun on deck,
usa made tank certificated for epa regulation and they can handle 25 psi fuel pressure in the tank
hi northstar, thanks for dropping by,
boat have cable outlet preparation (see pictures near transom) coming out of hatch and should get into console. i am getting my boat with console, T-top and seat not mounted, i will mount them,but see pictures for boat and equipment on it-shoud be similar to this more or less.
I will have space to put tank outside but prefer to use console and keep space for other things. either way, i am looking for method to secure the tank to ground, dont know how with these tanks if other than ratchets..
I prefer as less complicated tank as possible-there fore as you said no fighting with permanent fuel tank with all gauges etc etc..
question is whether i should fuel directly to the tank?
another consideration is putting a separation between tank and electricity to prevent risk of explosion, but that is another issue.
hope i answered your question..looking forward to your reply
p.s. seen scepter tanks, found 2 of them, one should be possible to fit in console (the low profile tank):
Scepter Rectangular Portable Fuel Tank 12 Gal/45L (Low Profile) w/Gauge 08669 | eBay
but could it be they are less strong than Moeller topside tanks? in pictures they seem so
