Hi Will, I've got a spare one.....we use them to pressurise the artesian water supply on the farm. Do you know that they are pressurised by means of pumping water into a neoprene bladder inside which is then forced out against the air between it and the outside tank causing the water to remain under pressure until a tap is turned. I say this, as you would need to find a way to pressurise the tank, specifically thefront removable piece without the neoprene bladder.

When I said pressurise, I suppose for a fuel tank, I mean seal!

Also, ours are probably too large if you only want 20litre version.

That's the idea I would remove the internals and weld filler etc to it .however 20 litres is the largest I can use as it needs to sit behind my Lpg tank which is 40 litres .thankyou anyway

I understood that, my se5 was on gas for 80,000 miles in the 80s, I meant use a lpg tank for petrol.
