The 25Ltr Caratank gives a 10kg working capacity and frees up the original gas locker box for other uses. This LPG tank setup kit is designed to be located in the centre of the vehicle just in front of the existing handbrake cable assembly, the Caratank used is 25ltr water capacity only on the euro 4.
Designed by Autogas 2000 Leisure Ltd in collaboration with CAD designers, the tank is secured by using purpose designed tank mounting cradle. These have been laser cut and folded to offer a mounting for any of our 200mm diameter gas tanks underfloor to the X250 chassis as used on many panel van conversions. Our underfloor tank mounting cradles are fully dipped and electroplated. By being electroplated, it goes inside the cradle to give the best corrosion protection possible. The design has been checked and an in-house certification is applied after confirmation from an engineering consultant to confirm that the cradle exceeds current recommendation for under floor tank mounting through mathematical calculations. The cradles are bolted through the chassis side so offer an easy fitting on pre-converted motor homes where a floor mounting would not be possible allowing the tank to lift straight in. This fixing also allows the tank to simply lifted into position during install and can in later life be simply removed for any service type of work that may be required.
Rubber insulation is also used between the tank and mounting frame to further protect the tank from corrosion build up between the two surfaces.
Various tank regulators are available either direct, remote or crash sensing in the event of new vans that require to use the gas heating while driving (remote mounted regulator included in this kit).
A heat shield is provided to reflect heat from the vehicle exhaust but also acts as a suitable stone guard to protect the tank during normal use.
Included the is kit is the led switched gauge, which is usually mounted on the dashboard giving a clear reading of the gas amount from inside the van.
Autogas 2000 Leisure Ltd recommend that the tank and associated fixing are further treated after install with suitable under-body stone guard spray on protection.
Choice of remote fill point are available to suit various van applications but pictures the sill filler is supplied in this kit unless we are otherwise advised.
In line with current industry guidelines the underfloor LPG tank and its mountings when installed should be further treated with a suitable spray on anti-stone chip paint.
