    Hi Guys,
    I'm about to install my 350 litre tank in the back of my transit connect. It needs bolting down but I'm not sure if the base is double skinned. If it isn't I'll probably be able to do it myself, if it is I'll have to take it to my local garage which will incur more costs. Does anybody have any ideas.

    That's the problem, I might hit a brake line or worse, the fuel tank.

    Best pay someone local to fit it properly as I would not have thought it would cost much to do. That is if you already have a proper tank frame so is just a matter of fitting it.
