Had a hand made aluminium (not aloo-minum!) 190 litres tank fitted yesterday.

Uses the factory sender and mountings, plus some additional mountings.

Nice!

Do you feel like sharing pictures and specs that might transfer to a machine-shop for those of us inclined to recreate/retrofit... on the western side of the pond where we think it's pronounced Al Lu Min Ummmmmm?

I second the request for specs and pics. I run expedited freight with my sprinter, so a bigger tank would help with not having to stop often. :cheers:

Some more information for you...

It was made by a French company whose UK agent trades under ACGB. A search will reveal their website, which is more basic than the actual range available.

A summary of the options for Sprinter are:

110 litres 53x21x124
130 litres 53x21x145
140 litres 71x21x124
170 litres 71x21x145
200 litres 71x21x175
265 litres 71x21x224

The last two require the use of an additional mounting point.

I would struggle to supply engineer's drawings for the one I've got. The best I could do would be a few photos and some scanned images of the instruction leaflet.
