      Fantastic work bent!

      With the new fuel tanks being plastic is there any additional space needed for expansion?

      Is the fuel capacity the same as it was having the original? and I assume you'll draw from one tank at a time.

      I'm sure one of the fellas in software tech can stitch these threads together for you. Keep up the good work!

          Fuel capacity is decreased by 20 liters.

          Yes I can choose which tank to fill and which to draw from.

          I tried very hard to make one thread but some limits prevent that, sorry

                      The tanks that you used appear to be portable type, is that correct? How are these tanks vented? I ask because portable tanks are not certified for installation in an enclosed compartment and in a compartment connected to the engine.

                        How are you planning to fill the tanks? Do you plan to connect each to a deck plate and run a vent line from each to an exterior vent? I'm also concerned about tank certification if those are designed to be portable. To me it would be like using a metric wrench on an SAE bolt. It might work but may cause an issue. You are doing beautiful work btw.

                        You now have my two cents.

                          These tanks are stationary tanks approved for fixed installation according to the specifications we have in Europe.

                          They are connected to 2 separate deck filler caps and sharing a vent line thats mounted higher than the fuel tank neck so don't worry about the safety, I'm very concerned about the safety for my family and friends.

                          By the way it would be a strange portable tank holding 140 liters of fuel, just joking.

                            Wow! I used to think my work was cool (you'll remember the thread), but I'm in awe. I've still got to show the completion photos, but my camera messed up. I very seriously considered moving my water and holding tanks to the side like you did, but in the end I didn't. Just awesome work! And a next no-deck-cut fuel tank replacement!
