General Discussion / Re: Gas tank inspection.

Good news is he knows his stuff, the bad news is that there is a bit too much rust on the tank, but he has removed it and is going to look for another one, worst case scenario is that it now doesn't have an out of date tank on the car.

Further to what I had already mentioned, an additional issue is that the solenoid on the tank is buggered, so can't run down the contents in the car, and the only way he can now vent the tank is to undo the screws that hold the valves on, which he said can bring quite a bit of unwanted attention in suburbia. He did have the setup on the back of the ute to be able to vac out gas if needs be, but as Hoyks mentioned, Probably not worthwhile most of the time, I also chatted to a larger place who rectifies tanks and they mentioned they vent them the same way.

All in all, happy with him so far and the price is quite a bit cheaper than the alternatives.

Think they were all looking around the coordinates from the journal and he did more research as to where they actually went rather than just the coordinates

I'm brave (or stupid :D ???) so I'll play Devil's Advocate here >:D

The solar panel on the bonnet is a novel idea, to say the least :D, but, so long as it's fastened down properly, what's actually wrong with it ??? In what way is it different to having a panle on the roof of your fourbie, or the front of the CT ???

& the gas cylinder certainly doesn't appear to be "jerry-rigged" ??? It's sitting on a cradle & is tightly strapped to the spare, so there wouldn't appear to be any risk of it falling off. Yes, it's in the "hazardous zone" at the back of the vehicle in case of a rear-ender, but it's also about 4' off the ground, well & truly above most car's bonnets.

I note that he wasn't defected over either of those, only warned. Would be interesting to see the details of the warning ???

Be interesting to see how much sun glare would come off it at times
