Big Tanks on the way

This is the response I got back from Aqualine reguarding the rumor of larger capacity tanks. We shall see.....




Jason,

We are working on 950 tanks, but have had to hold off until we could
see a
990 and work out how to include the new injection system - we'll get
our
hands on one in two weeks. The tanks will hold around 40 litres, but
won't
be available for several months.

Regards

Tony

Talking BIG Tanks on the way.

We are working on 950 tanks, but ...

This is the same reply I recieved from Tony as well. Lets all bombard him with requests.

I'm now thinking an IronButt Rally attempt would be possible wih 10 gallons on board!!!
