Why no, I hadn't. It seems too small to be a fuel tank but what puzzled me was that some photos had it and some didn't.

Surprising the answer was on a Site aimed at Canadian usage

Quote:
an auxiliary fuel tank mounted on the outside rear hull, which carried an additional 148-litres. This auxiliary tank was connected to the main fuel system, but could be jettisoned from the tank in an emergency.
yep......its a fuel tank....

I should have checked that but hindsight is 20-20

thanks for the tip
