Many thanks !

Your tank is an after market type and the only place for fitting this one is the supplier. I suggest going back to G-Classics.com to get instructions from them or get them to give you the suppliers contact details. 

From the picture alone, this is just the tank and does not include any fittings which should be some large and small diameter hoses etc.

Thanks ! I asked the question one week ago to G-Classics.com, but they didn't care to answer :-(

I have send them an email now and we have to wait to see how they react. Will be in touch.

Would you please confirm if this is a replacement fuel tank with greater capacity than standard (90 Lts+) because I do not think this is an additional tank. The additional tanks I am aware of is normally for the W460 chassis which mount in either wheel arch area and one may fit one 15 Lts tank in one arch or have two separate ones at each wheel arch.

I have a feeling this is a larger capacity tank to replace the normal 90 lt tank fitted which I expect will be of plastic construction.

Have any other fittings with this tank?

Thanks for your help ! 

This is an additional tank. The idea is to keep the standard tank, and add 66 liters of additional capacity. 

Together with the tank I bought, came a filling tube (in stainless steel). On the tank a fuel pump is installed. 

The quality of the tank is very high (beautiful welding job).

Hi

Have a look at the G Entdecker, it has a similar tank, they may be able to help.

G Entdecker commercial flyer is indeed an interesting reading. They use an additional fuel tank IN the cabin.

The additional tank I purchased (and for which I'm looking for installation instructions) is designed to be installed UNDER the vehicle.
