Certainly wants checking but WTF ????

As long as tank is almost empty (reet heavy otherwise), not sat on, sealed or cooked, I don't see how this is different to the thousands of tanks floating around production lines or in transport before they are fitted.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
