    Keep an eye out on fleebay as they sometimes go dirt cheap as I pick up a 450 flat tank once for only £25:)

    A 300l D will fit in no problems, that's what I started with.

    450 tank would have been way too heavy to use in a car.

    If you can afford it best look out for a cheapish decent size van instead of knackering your car for work.

    Mine had the 4 lash down points in the floor, ratchet straps rated at 3000kg across it from both sides. The weight is only equivalent to 3 grown men in the back, it's rated to take 5 adults and 2 children so was never a problem. The only thing I checked was the tyre load rating. It had enough room for 2 backpacks too either side of the tank.
