    Hi all,

    I am after a new van which will hopefully be a Mercedes vito 2011/12 and fitting a 700 l tank in the rear. The gross weight is 2800kg but can't find out what the payload is and if it's safe to put a tank that size in the back. Does anybody have this set up already or know of where I find the answer ???

    Thanks

    The Grippatank website has a payload checker.

    For an average size van (experts, transits, transporters etc) 650L is normally the largest size tank fitted.
    As peter mentioned, once you consider your weight, reels, ladders etc, this will take you up to your payload. On an expert this is around 950 :thumbsup:

    All LWB Vivaros, Trafics & Primastar vans have the uprated springs fitted as standard, I was told this by the commercial sales fellow at Renault so they all have an extra 250kg payload.
