I have spent Easter mounting my 150l tank under the back of the Supa Trupa..... can't wait to fill in Melbourne and drive in Gippsland for 14.5cents a litre cheaper [diesel]!

Anybody got suggestions for a fuel pump... capacity, brand.... features?

I'll have a switch on the dash to flick when the front tank is low.

Next question..... can you get after market.... separate fuel guages... I haven't checked yet.

AND.... another question. The tank is from a landcruiser. It's got four little pipes which come together into a plastic reservoir and then out via one pipe to the 'engine'. I'm guessing that these are venting or breather tubes and could probably be vented to the open air. Any ideas or dire warnings?Royce www.funshow.com.au

Just a suggestion...
I made an aux tank for my Patrol and the pump I used was an old Volvo petrol pump (as I had it after replacing the pump from a friends car. It was getting noisy...)
It's been there 10 years now and runs like a charm (diesel lubes much better than Petrol) It pumps near enough to two litres a minute.
I'm sure you'd pick one up very cheaply from the wreckers
