Arrived today .
My new "little" Tank.
It's a 240 ltr tank. i think that's around 63,40 US Gallon and 52,79 UK Gallon.
Attachment 8240

Attachment 8241

Attachment 8242

Attachment 8243

standerd tank is 75 ltr,around the 19,81 Gallon.

ps, the pallet size is 120 cm, so you can see how long the tank is.
it's the biggest you can get with wb 432cm.

Wow! You'll have to give us the details on where you got it. I'm sure you'll get lots of questions on whether it will work on US Sprinters. I might want one of these eventually. I'd suggest starting a separate thread in the NCV3 group on this nice item and its installation.

Man is that thing loooong. Is he back of that thing in another zip code?

I want one of theose tanks. I'm close enough to Mexico for a fill up at $2.00/gallon, and still have a mostly full tank.

I think he's in Netherlands, which means that tank spans two or three countries.

That looks very much like an ACGB tank to me - same company I got mine from.

Excellent manufacturing quality, a really beautiful item. Almost seems a shame to sling it underneath.

Actually Robert, I reckon you could get 245 litres in if you use the watering can too!

i got the tank in the netherlands and yes indeed,the tank comes from the company acgb.
It is a expansive tank. it costs arounthe 1550 euro's.
but if you recon that a liter over here costs around the 1.44 euro in holland,and in other country's in europe it costs even more .
tomorrow( saterday) i will install the tank under my sprinter.
maybe i will make some pictures of the installation.

greetings and a nice weekend too everyone.
