Auxilliary fuel tank

My 1980 300SD has a larger than normal tank. I hadn't even noticed it when I first got the car, as I didn't know much about them, but a friend who has a bunch of these cars recognized it immediately: the steel panel separating the trunk from the tank is much further back in my car, reducing the trunk space by about 8 to 10 inches. The tank seems to hold about 35 gallons, and my range is about 800 miles. Pretty cool!
