    I am currently planning to fit an under-seat fuel tank to my 110.
    My concern (like the proverbial battery access issue) was what to do about easy under-seat access.

    I have a pair of Ford KA seats which fit nicely and are very comfortable (heated too).
    I was on the verge of going back to defender seats but discovered a solution.

    No doubt there are other seats/styles where this can be done but I thought I would share my findings so others might have another option.

    Under the seat at the back of the 'squab' (is that the word) there are two bolts holding it to the frame.
    The front is hinged to allow the angle to be changed as the seat is raised/lowered.

    By removing the two bolts the seat base will swing up a fair way , enough to access the fuel tank below, or the battery for charging under the passenger seat.
