When I went from a 20 litre to 33 litre tank, 12GS to 12GSA tank, the gain was about 10-15 pounds. Nothing, in the grand scheme of things. An HP2 13 litre tank to a 20 litre tank shouldn't be more than 10 pounds. Yet the range will equal the 12GS. I'm looking forward to one.
get off the cross, we need the wood
