The earlier G115s had a single tank mounted behind the pilots, however the newer ones have an engine driven and an electric fuel pump drawing fuel from the wing tanks.
They're a funny little plane, bungee nose wheel steering, unusual spin characteristics and, due too thier glider heritage, amazing ground effect on landing.
Quite a challenging 'plane.

That wobbling of the nose on descent, even a cruise one, is quite peculiar but not really bothersome. That nosewheel looks solid enough, but it sure isn't. Let it down on the rwy anytime sooner than 35kts on rollout and it'll shimmy like a shopping cart. The opposite is true on take-off. It's the trike ldg gear A/C that requires a little work in a crosswind due to that.

The G115b that I fly here in Switzerland has the tank behind the pilot. Also, the manual says that intentional spins are prohibited so I am not sure how anyone but the test pilots found out about the spin characteristics, unless they unintentionally spun it.

Finally, the nose wheel steering is not bad I find and it does not shimmy on our planes.

It is a bit of a challenge to land but not that bad. You just have to have good speed control.

The G115 has a modification kit which fits a ventral fin under the tail to allow spin training.
