Hi all,

I am a new member in Australia. I have just purchased my second J3 which is currently located 3500km from my home. I will be flying this aircraft right across Australia East to West, including a crossing of the Nullabor desert. Fuel can be obtained at various locations across the Nullabor, but several sections require 18 gallons of fuel between stops. I have only the 12gallon standard tank, so I have a problem. Can anyone advise me of a way to install a temporary ferry tank of 6-9 gallons?
