GTE Hatchback Stainless steel fuel tank

Recommended Posts

Started to look into Stainless steel fuel tanks for the Manta GTE Hatchback.
A hell of a lot of steel goes into these and a hell of a lot of welding and fabrication.
They will not be a 100% replica and capacity is looking at being approximately 5 litres less than the original tank.
Original locking fuel cap will fit.
Shall have the fuel/pressure breather system and pipes fitted.
And shall have internal swirl pot for injection.
Expected price of £500.00
Gauging interest.

If it a fuel injection tank Clive I will put a deposit down right now. Just send me your payment details.

It is worth mentioning though that the fuel gauge sender is different between injection and carb models. The injection items bolt on and the carb items have a bayonet style fitting.

Thanks

Hi Snowy, yes it is an injection tank mate.

I shall be making up a prototype over the next week, a surprising amount of material, fittings and work to go into one of these.
