Arriving soon! Stainless Fuel tanks for FE,FC FB,EK

Model: 

Cant find a fuel tank for your FE.FC FB OR EK Ute ,Van,sedan or wagon? Well at last there is an affordable solution being developed right now that should overcome the problems with rusty,dented and tiny Tanks that these cars have...
I am developing a Stainless fuel tank that suits all Models of FE,FC FB and EK Sedans Wagons Utes and P'van . These will hold about 65 litres ( originals were 43 litres) and are 2" deeper than stock. They have a larger intake pipe inside the tank to suit bigger engines and use all the factory mounting points. The sender unit is custom made to suit the original fuel guage (0-30 OHMS). All parts will be supplied in the kit and all the modification required is to hacksaw cut your old filler neck off and using the supplied clamps and hose your old filler neck just clamps back on. It shouldn't leak and the whole thing is designed to be a straight out bolt in deal. The original fuel lines will even screw into the new tank. This tank is still being developed and is being trailed in a EK Ute in Sydney. This is an upcoming feature in a streetmachine magazine. ( same ute as the recent gearbox swap article) Estimated cost is about $675 with all parts plus freight. The tank is made from 1.6mm thick 316 stainless steel and is strong enough to handle the bumps a lot better than the original. They can be supplied polished or powdercoated at extra cost.
The tank shown in the picture is the prototype and it is promising. This shows the baffle plate and pick up pipe. I will keep every one informed as the development progresses. Cheers streetneat

there are no stupid questions only stupid people

Take a look at your ute It has a hose and clamps holding the filler neck to the tank. A lot of cars use this method. As far as leaking goes the tanks are tested by immersing them in water and looking for air leaks. They are fully tig welded . As far as being approved goes the tanks at this stage wont be going through costly approval procedures like drop tanks. These tanks are simply a reproduction of the originals - just deeer and a lot stronger. We have had tanks made for hot rods b4 and never had to get the tanks complied . We will look into it as a matter of interest. Cheers streetneat

Whats happened to google it just sends me to corpo crap. All the good stuff is gone.

if you want an EFI tank in your tonner, try Castle Auto Electrics (scroll down the page), they do them in alunimium and come complete with pump and sender.

If you require a pump I reccomend the VL Commodore pump thats mounted external to the tank. ATM we are only doing tanks for the models I have mentioned. The other models are a bit more awkward so they may come later. We are still getting the development right on these first tanks b4 we move onto others. Tanks can be custom made to order but I would have to check with my mate who is making them and gets as many datails as I can for him. Cost wuld be looked at on a individual basis for these custom ordered tanks. Cheers streetneat...

This thread is 13-odd years old. Streetneat doesn't live here anymore. You could try searching "streetneat" on bookface, he's pretty easy to find. Good luck..
