Hello, I am about to fit a right hand tank and match it with a 5.5 gallon tank on the left hand side.  Only when I removed the 7.5 gallon tank did I appreciate that the diagonal strap actually holds the larger tank off the boot floor, clamping it to the filler hole.  The smaller tank will therefore need a locating plate to go on the boot floor but, so far as I can see, the Mini shops don't stock it...or is it identical to the one sold for the right hand tank?  Similarly, whilst they stock the right hand side wall anchor (that fits to the rear seat bulkhead) I can't see a left handed one.  Or do I just put the right sized bolt through top hold the top strap?

 

Any help will be appreciated!

 

Thank you

 

David

Both sides are available for the 5.5l tank.

Many thanks humph, I did do a good search but obviously not good enough!  Cheers, David
