Can I add more suggestions to my previous response:
For very little more cash you can often install two or more tanks in maybe the same space, or maybe nearby each other, and connect them with hoses and valves. Use some careful thought about the connecting lines and valve access.
This often does four things - it makes it easier to install or remove, provides inherent baffling to prevent serious sloshing of fuel
that would occur inside a big tank, isolates a tank if you have a bad fuel problem and can increase tankage.
Also, look ahead about what you would do if you have a fuel problem such as fuel not getting through. By having small and inexpensive valves along the fuel line (after the tank, after the filter, after a second filter if fitted, after the pump) you can often quickly solve problems. Some people use domestic natural gas/propane valves which are of higher quality than for mere diesel
, and are very inexpensive even with adapters.
The use of an inexpensive vacuum gauge Tee'd in after your filter will also tell you when your expensive fuel filter/s needs changing. You are wasting money
and resources if you simply replace according to the calendar.
Fuel problems often occur in an emergency
situation! Yeah - I have been there!!
