Fuel tanks

Post #1 by flanigan1967 » Fri Apr 26, 2019 4:34 pm

The tank in my very used 1976 doesn't leak, but is there something better, for less than a $1800 Fuelsafe tank? Maybe put a aftermarket aluminum tank on plate replacing the factory tank?

Do you need a racing tank? Is this a 67 or a 76? You can get a new re-pop oem tank for like $80 for a 67
It ain't gonna fix itself

Curse you auto correct! It's a 67. I foolishly read another "the fuel tank isn't safe" article, and was looking around for ideas. I think I'll just get a new stock replacement. Thanks.

My 65 has been modified for ethanol by using alcohol lines purchased from one of the on-line round-track racing places that burn alcohol. I changed the tank twice and now keep the latest one as full as possible to avoid water. I also keep alcohol-safe treatment in the gas as well as a bottle is kept in the trunk for trips. The Autolite 2100 2-barrel has had an alcohol-safe kit installed with an additional see-thru in-line filter to keep an eye on trash in the fuel.
