I have been wanting to increase my fuel capacity, but have heard too many stories similar to yours.
Not just the cracking of the tank, but I have also heard various accounts of the mountings of the tank that fatigue.
With regard to the 60 L plastic tank on the roof, how do you transfer the fuel? 'Lexi -- Die 60 litr tenk het n "outlet / eps wag laat iok in Ingils oorgoi: The 60 litre tank has an outlet. I fitted a normal GAS hos [gaspyp van Cadac] there, and on its end i fitted an inline fuel filter. This end I then cable tie at least 8 inces highr than the tank [else the expansion of the fuel pushes out there and spills all over yer karrikji. Then, as soon as there is 20 liter out of the car's tank, I just lower the gas hose into the fuel tank, and voil .. hy loop sommer self vol ..]
Personally I do not like the idea of sucking and spitting from a hose? see my solution above
E.g. outboard motor tanks, come with a pipe that has a little pump in the pipe that works mannually by hand (at least until the gravity flow has been established).
Is this a workable solution for overlanding? Has anyone done this?
