Not seen it yet, need to finish the GP first before anyone tells me who won!

IIRC, t'was a Rascal or Supercarry - black? - that he drove on Top Gear.

Watched it last night, baffling! Very Happy

I was talking to a guy at my local plumbers merchant about this last year when buying some tanks for work. He reckons that many window cleaners have big water tanks fitted in their vans with no baffles inside - keep clear of them on the road guys.

Fascinating. I have a largish lpg tank fitted in the back of mine which I did hear sloshing about and which did seem to rock the car occasionally from side to side at the rear. Hasn't done it for a while now though.
I wonder if they have baffles? Probably not.

Wonder if that's one I looked at a few years back? It had a tank behind the front seats, about 3 foot cubed. No good for me as it took up way too much loadspace. I'd hope your tank has baffles in if it's approaching that sort of size.

No. I had the work done.

The tank is 65 litres, just over 1 metre long and a foot wide, which I wouldn't have thought would be too bad but it does take about half of the boot space behind the centre seats.
