    ive got to vans fitted out with bigger tanks then that and there fine however they are baffled and wedge, plus strapped in ,

    when I was working in dhl I would pick up one of these every other day full of pure water all brand new and drop it off at the local paint factory for them to make paint with , I was using a transit 350, with uprated springs on the back , all strapped in with 5 tonne straps and buy god did it rock the van every light , every round about you knew that thing was on there

    well its obviously not safe but we all do what we have to do.

    I dont think any ratchet strapped tank is safe if involved in an accident at any sort of speed but not everyone can afford a pro fitted, crash tested setup.

    I wouldnt want to be putting that in an employees van.

    Its one thing being a one man band but being a national company changes your responsibilites and liabilty somewhat.
