Hi there
I think my range is just under 200k (150 - 180km) at the moment. 
Thanks

Haha, its true. I wanted something of about 20-23liters, as I want to do a Nam trip. unfortunately the sizes are 10, 16, 17 and 28 liters. So of course I have the 28 liter, but I have never filled it up. And when I have 10 liters in it the COG is actually better on the big tank, because it drops the fuel nice and low.
The tank is from RV Aqualine in Aus. I will warn you that they are expensive, you'll have to decide for youself if it will be worthit to you.

Thanks for the info, I see there is a tank available from Roberts racing for about 3k.  That sounds pretty good, what do you say?  They dont give the sizing, only say long range tank.  Will try get more info.
Thanks

True, but that's just over R2000 - I think it's a bargain!
