    Hi,
    Been looking at wfp systems and a van to get started. I see a lot of you are using a Citroen Berlingo. What size of tank have you in it and did you buy the system complete or did you make it up yourselves? I was looking at a Brodex system but its 500 litres and they say you need a a Despatch size van. Is 500 too big a tank or should I start smaller?
    Cheers,
    Steve

    500lt tank will weight about upto 600kg on its own when full, and thats without any equipment.

    my berlingo's payload is only 600kg! with 375lt tank in it and all equipment (2man set up) its 10kg short of it! so better keep an eye out for the weight limit!
    i myself like to build everything myself, that way i know whats going on and when a problem happens i know what it is and how to sort it out. just depends if you know what you are doing to build your own etc. brought the van and all the equipment and only cost £2500!
