Duplicate post, Oldwheels. How about deleting one?

I need water and fuel bladders. Not sure who is reading what post. Not trying to duplicate the post, just need direction.

I used ATL for an insert for a diesel tank. They were excellent but not inexpensive.

Stick with ATL. They make a quality product. They were the drug smugglers choice back in the eighties.

Re: Bladders and more bladders

The Vetus bladder tanks aboard my yacht (2 x 200 litres of diesel) are now more than 35 years old and have never given any problem whatsoever.
A big advantage being that there is virtually no air in them and so next to no condensation.
