The first one on the list is the only US Elsbett dealer I can link, but I will add elsbett.com for information and international.

Thanks SunWizard. Elsbetts site has some interesting history available, in addition to a complete list of vehicles they offer kits for.

Their system is so bad I would never recommend it to anyone, nor will I add it to the list. Their "semi-permanent" filter is horrible for many reasons, and that is about all their "system" consists of. A bag of unknown micron rating and low particle capacity wrapped around a mesh screen $20 goldenrod filter.

Sounds like an opinion to me, and not based on any real world experience.
You should change the wording in the first post from:
"Here are the single tank kit and parts vendors I know of, post if you know others and I will add here (for 2 tanks see that section.) Note, some offer just a heated filter and call that a kit."
to maybe: Here a few single tank kit and parts vendors, post if you know others and if I don't like them, I won't add them to the list.
A definition of a "kit" could mean all of the parts necessary to complete the system. If it takes a heated filter, heat exchanger, booster pump, hoses, clamps, and detailed instructions, then it is definately concidered a "kit".

Its an opinion based on the real world experience of dozens of actual users who have been complaining about their systems on all the other message boards I read. As well as my analysis of their detailed posts. This is the only system I wouldn't list, and will actively discourage people from.

You have checked "disable BBCode in this post" on all your posts, so that you can't quote or bold use any of the forum special features. You could edit your profile and your posts to turn it on.

You can start a thread debating the benefits and drawbacks of Lovecraft if you like.

The 1st 3 you gave are 2 tank systems and are listed in that section of the forums already. If you want to discuss Lovecraft, start a thread about it as I said above, you will get lots of opinions.

Oops...my bad. Classic noob gaffe...

Oh well, I wasn't aware that they were strictly dual-tank systems, so at least I learned something. I will start a Lovecraft thread and see what kind of can of worms shall be opened within it. Thanx for the heads up.
