Just hit this thread after another thread and wondering if you still need a 200 tank Chris?

I have one you could borrow for a wee while if this was still a goer in terms of a project.

On the backburner.....major cost factors are making it very prohibitive. Today's fuel additives mean way more expense involved.

They're forming part of the expense.

Bulk deal perhaps? I know the Caswell bloke here in Victoria is a bit difficult to deal with, but he doesn't own the company.

I was thinking this might be a good way of pre-empting the failure of tanks by putting it in first before they split.

If you want an IT 200 tank let me know   . Will also do the machine work to make the filler necks if that helps .
