Project #2 under way  Exclamation
The Paj runs so smooth on heated veg that I'm doing the 2.5
I've had engine speed related high frequency vibration problems for a few years & tried everything to cure it without success. I'm hoping some hot svo will have it running as sweet as the Paj - Boy oh boy will I be chuffed if it does.

IMPORTANT ELECTRICAL INFO FOR TWIN TANK WIRING.

If you fit a twin tank system with a pair electic solenoid valves, one to swap between diesel / svo and another to swap the return line from diesel tank to svo tank or looped back to the pump feed they require a 5amp feed for the dashboard switch.
You might also fit a temperature gauge to know when to switch (and because the original gauge is pants) to svo plus other gaiges etc.
I originally took power from the radio switched live, via a 5amp fuse, to the switch.
I also have an aftermarket temperature gauge / sender and a low-level warning gauge/light for the svo tank.
When switching between diesel / svo / purge modes the power drain/spike cuts out the temperature gauge requiring ignition off then on again to bring the gauge reading back. It eventually blew the fuse so obviously it meeds more current than just the 5amps for the full set-up.
I've cut the power wire to the svo switch and diverted the feed to a relay behind the glovebox earthed to the glovebox mount. Main load power for the switch now comes direct off the battery via another 5amp fuse, through the bulkhead grommet behind rear battery and to the relay then from there up to the switch. The temp gauge does still flick from it's 40 start-up reading to zero but then returns to 40 again and maintains function.
