    As I've said in my other thread I might think about getting a little system in the spare van and take someone on. What size of tank could I realistically fit in a little renault clio van ?

    the payload of them is between 480kg - 535kg depending on year and model.

    you wouldnt get anything bigger than a 150-200lt tank at the max in it.

    got to count for these with in the payload to:-

    if the driver weights 11 stone thats 70kg
    full tank fuel 55lt - 55kgs
    roof rack if poles dont fit inside

    250lt tank would weight around 300-350kg bolted down. so say 350kg on safe side,

    tank 350kg
    driver 70kg
    fuel 55kg
    battery 5kg
    plumbing 5kg
    1 pole 3kg

    total 488kg

    its was the fiesta van, not the fiesta courier, it was a 250 flat, everything fitted in, pole went over the top of the passenger seat, wish i had kept it sometimes
