  1. What is the best tank flat or upright for safety

    For safety, if a diy installation, flat, no question, lower centre of gravity. But it takes up more space like that, so 'professional' setups tend to be upright. You can do a diy upright system, but you need to be very careful how you secure it.

    Yeah, if money is short, diy is really your only option. Just make sure if you already have a van, get an appropriate sized tank for the payload, or if you dont have a van, decide what size tank you want, then choose a suitable van. I have a diy 500l system in the back of my transit connect (900kg payload).

    I've had my system 2 years, never had an airblock?.

    Combo is fine, but which model is it?. A 2000 (thats gvw, not engine size) will be fine for a 350-400l tank, but the 1700 would prob only take a 250l tank.
