Second diesel tank

The new fuel filters arrived and this time we tried them for several hours before we installed them. In the left picture you can see them in front of the second diesel tank. The aluminium box to the right is for our LPG bottles. As you can see the tank and the new LPG box are designed to fit tight together. We can now bring twice as much gas and 15 liters more diesel in less space than before. The right picture shows how little of the diesel tank you can see from the cockpit, most of it is hidden behind the back support. This space was unused before and the new solution has left more storage space. But it was tricky to get all the parts in place and it took way too much time. Today we have less than 50 days left before our departure, I am going to set my alarm earlier next week.
