Has anyone fitted one if these to their 50th?

I believe we have the same fuel tank as the TD5, are there any potential gotchas on the 50th that might make this addition not work?

Issue will be the expansion tank on inside of wheel arch and section of seatbelt bar underneath

I recently bought one of these kits from Safari Equip but the garage that I use were not happy fitting it. Main issue is a charcoal filter unit (for emissions) that gets in the way of the fuel line that has to be fitted between the existing tank and the new tank (a hole has to be drilled in the existing tank to accommodate this). Safari Equip assured me when I ordered the kit that it would fit. Despite promising a refund over the phone I'm having issues getting my money back - not a great experience.

Well that doesn't sound very good then, thanks for the info.
Does anyone know any other options to increase range on the 50th, without resorting to lpg?
