Difficult one that. Located behind the back axle as are our twin 45ltr ones are what might be acceptable on the open road even over sleeping policemen can cause problems getting on/off ferries at low tide.

I thought to put on the side between front and back axle. Some one told me should be ths same or higher than vehicle fuel tank.

Really like to have large tank e.g. 100 liters. : )

Have you checked your normal consumption motobox? And your projected needs?

I have a couple of 11kg refillable bottles (so about 35 litres). From memory I use just over a litre a day so that would do me the best part of a month.

Do you really need 100 litres? (It's all weight, to be accommodated within your payload.)
