Fuel tanks

Post by bealo »

Has any one got some fuel tanks that are willing to ship or close to Essex uk?

I was cleaning mine up and found many holes

Cheers
Iain

Is it an idea to start investigate making a few tanks from plastic?

That’s not a bad shout, they are getting very hard to find decent ones
I’ve managed to source a pair of tanks but not they are much better! I’m going to look at them later

In the tanks themselve? Or in the metal seam? They are welded around with approx a half an inch of extra metal around. And thats where they tend to rot, but that is pretty well doable to weld up.
