    Bet that's a weight in the back. How you got it strapped in & how do you get the water out.

    Have you put baffles in the tank?

    A great cheap way is to use the plastic balls from a kids ball pit and a soldering iron and pop a few holes in them to allow the water to flow through them but not loosing any space in the tank ;-)

    When i first started wfp i had a backpack on a b&q trolley and 200lt in 25lt containers. had them in the back of my laguna hatch back. 6 months later £250 for rear suspension. Hope it goes well but it is a lot of weight.
