I received a reply email today from the owner of the stainless steel tank, his cost was approx. $400.00, I am not sure which denomination that amount is in ... SA - USD or AUD's.

I have replied to him with a link to this Thread and invited him to join the Forum and answer any further questions directly.

Wow, I honestly never expect this to go much further. If you are corresponding with this gent try to get the company name if he remembers it.

G'day all

On this subject, has anyone looked at mounting their spare vertically in the boot, either across or length-ways?

Thanks

Gidday Fizzie

It tends to take up a LOT of room, and is filthy if it's been on the car. Just a couple of thoughts ... .

My old Range Rover had it mounted that way. A wheel cover hid the dirt.

Did anyone ever end up enquiring further about this idea? While it may only give a bit more than a 20L jerry can, if someone was really going off-road they could always fill this as well as the jerry can/s they have. An extra 22L would no doubt be very handy in the desert on top of any other fuel carried!

For my desert run I removed the rear seat squab, laid some high density foam then carried 3 x 10L metal jerrys on their side. Folding the seat back down and securing it on top of them gave a great second level for packing. I carried a 4th 10L jerry in the space between my drawers and the rear quarter panel; then another 20L in the rear jerry holder - so additional 60L all up.
