    I would say flat as load is lower & more evenly distributed

    I think i need to research this, as thats what i was thinking.

    Yet if you slammed on your brakes and you have a 1000mm long tank. Its has 1000mm to slosh about it.

    If it was an upright and it was 500mm long. It would only have 500mm to slosh about in.

    Doing my nut in trying to design this system GRRRRRRRRRR

    Have you ever thought of using an oval shaped tank?

    look @ all the tankers on the road that transfer liquids most seem to be round/ oval tanks!

    flower pots work! just wash them in pure water first!

    you have to strap the to bottoms of each pot together first
