Auxiliary Fuel Tank

The plan here is to run the water heating and living accommodation heating and Generator from a third fuel tank.
This third tank has a capacity of 250ltrs, it will also double as a reserve tank for the truck, If the truck fuel runs low a switch in the cab can pump the contents of this tank into the main tanks in approx 2 minuets, Leaving about 30 ltrs for the heating etc.

I have installed a float switch system in the main tank the will prevent an overflow in the event of the switch being operated when the main tanks are full.

The bracket i had acquired in CZ when i was there turned out to be the wrong size, so i had to fabricate a new bracket for the tank.
