VW Crafter Underfloor 30ltr/12kg Caratank Kit up to 2016/17 with B pillar filler
NEW FOR 2020- Technical update LPG tank mounting cradles.
Our underfloor tank mounting cradles are now fully dipped and electroplated. This ensures that the electroplating goes fully inside the cradle to give the best corrosion protection possible.
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.
For any technical questions please feel free to contact email@example.com
This Kit will suit vans up to the end of 2016 and early 2017 before the new chassis change from 2017 onwards. For later vans please contact us as we have tank options available.
This gives a 12kg working LPG capacity and frees up the original gas locker box for other uses.
The tank kit is for fitting on the OS chassis side and simply bolts to existing chassis members using our purpose designed mounting brackets and cradles.
The tank is secured by using purpose designed tank frame, that have been designed by Autogas 2000 Leisure with collaboration with Cad designers, these British made cradles are laser cut and folded to offer a mounting for any of our 200mm diameter gas tanks under floor.
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 then bolted to a mounting frame that allows the frame to the bolted through the chassis making for easy install. This fixing also allows the tank to simply be 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 or remote even crash sensing but for ease of install we have used the Truma direct to tank version in this case as it makes for a tidy install but there is an option of remote mounted if required.
An led switched gauge is included in this kit, which gives a clear dashboard reading of the gas amount remaining inside the tank from inside the van.
Autogas 2000 recommend that the tank and associated fixings are further treated after install with suitable underbody stone guard spray on protection.
Choice of remote fill point are available to suit various van applications, this kit is supplied with the UK bayonet filler with round housing, which is usually fitted in the B pillar just behind the driver’s door (right hand drive van). The housings come in black, white or grey please state the colour you require when ordering, black will be sent out if not advised.
