    I'm looking at a Vauxhall Combo van and its rated pay load is 595kg.

    What size tank do you reckon I can get in the back?

    Cheers!

    If you are dead set on the combo. Get the bigger payload version.

    I am just about to sell mine. (Buyer already found)

    My payload is 785 kg

    Holds 500Litres and with me and fuel etc I'm just in payload allowance.

    Checked it on a weighbridge.

    I now run an upright 350 tank. Awesome.

    If you dead serious on the combo. Hit me up on FB. Loads of pics.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    Only reason I ask is because my mechanic has got a combo for sale. It's the 1700 so 595kg pay load, 54 reg, 100k miles for £1k.

    I need a van asap and it seems a good price. Do you think I'd get away with a 350l tank?

    Timbeam. Also with the combo you cannot bolt in a caged frame due to the floor. But you can weld in false plates and nuts.

    If you get stuck ring me. As not on here much.

    Done every setup possible Ina combo!

    0 7 8 7 2 5 6 3 8 4 3 left gaps so google shouldn't pick it up :)
