Nice one, Graeme! I've been told they should fit straight on but not had confirmation of that until now. I believe they are 120 or 130 litres or so. Nothing to stop putting another on the other side too.

Right, it's off to the breakers now!

duel fuel tank switch

I have just finished fitting and linking two plastic tanks together.
So I thought people might be interested in how I linked them.
Very simply I bought a dual tank solonoid operated switch from ebay. it was about £60 and it switches both the flow and the return pipes and also the sender unit. So one flick of a switch on the dashboard and I am running on the other tank and I know exactly how fuel or empty I am.
I still cant seem to upload a photo but if anyone wants one I can email you.

Here though is the ebay link
