    What size van do you have and what litre tank do you carry in it, what would be the biggest tank I could put in a kangoo size van, I'm thinking 250l is gonna be a bit small don't last long enough.

    Volkswagen caddy, think it's 825kg payload, can carry 400 litres water at a push.

    I use 250 litres a day by myself, 350 max with 2, as a rule.

    My van has a payload of 995kg and have a tank of 750 liter tank on board. Any good company that fit systems would be able to tell you what would be best. I used GrippaTank.co.uk to fit my system maybe if you give them a call they can help.
    But I have always gone in that a 1000 litres of water is about a ton do you need to take that into account when working out what size tank to have plus other equipment.

    I have a fiat scudo with a 300l tank in. But very rarely fill it to the max.

    300liters does tend to be more than enough for a days work.

    It's a kangoo, so would the largest be 250L

    Merc Vito (surprise) with 350 ltr upright. Good for days work, haven't run out since I've learned how to do the job properly!

    I'm guessing if you fill that mate you'd be overloaded..... Have you stuck it on a weighbridge when full and checked weights, including axle loading?

    750 litres of water is about 3/4 of a ton which leave 245kg for my other equipment. It's all in the math.
