For a normal european truck, a tank of that size seems unlikely. I've got a 800 liter tank on my truck, and it takes the full space between the front and the rear axle on the left. Technicly, I think 2 X 600 liters is about the max.

If you understand German, this is an interesting video about the rest area troubles for truckers.

I'm guessing it was about the lack of parking for trucks, as I don't speak German. It looked like some were parking on the hard shoulder of the motorway, as even the slip road was full.

So that's kinda like a truck version of James May's Alfaab?

I have a question? In your country, what is the legislation concerning the use of roads/highways by agricultural machines?

Few modern trucks. These are rare and in no hurry to become a more familiar sight on indian highways.

No idea about what legislations you are actually asking for.

I know that in Switzerland slow vehicles are allowed on the Gotthard and San Bernardino motorway tunnels at least in winter when the passes are closed (with some restrictions on time or the need of escort I suppose). Is that what Suburbanist is looking for?
