The Kerbodyne Engine Cluster Adapter Tank is a multi-coupler adapter arranged in a quincunx. It breaks multiple records in that it has the highest capacity of all adapter-fuel tanks, most parts attachable to the split area of a multi-coupler adapter, and the largest in terms of difference between said part diameters (splitting from the 5m 'Huge' size down to five 1.25m 'Small' size nodes).

Product description

When Kerbodyne engineers realized that no single engine currently manufactured could justify the use of the S4 fuel tank line, they added attachment points for five of them on this handy adapter tank.
