    Hi mark302,

    If you wanted to keep to a stock replacement tank try these people;

    Th JAZ tank as already been said is a lot more boxey, it depends what you intend on doing with the car? JAZ fuel cells are foam filled to stop fuel movement, they are designed for race cars but alot of people use them on the street, i think they also do a filler neck so you could posibly connect to the original filler?

    All the best,
    Di n Dave...(DJ)

    As Mustangs are pretty well covered by the repro market I would have thought it would be fairly easy, and not too expensive, to fit a stock replacement one. You could also get someone to fabricate one in steel, aluminium or stainless, but again, I don't see any real advantage.

    Sorry, I don't know the law on non-metallic fuel tanks, but I'm pretty sure Harley V-Rods have a poly tank under the seat.


    Yes my V-Rods fuel tank is not metal, sculpted plastic tank between the frame under the seat.

    It's for a 1967 Mustang coupe.
    the boot floor is the old tank, so with tank removed, hole in floor is 77mm by 56mm.
    Also old tank 16 Gallon, but smaller would be preferable, as I have never filled it up anyway, also old tank makes exhaust a tight fit.
    I can make brackets and floor panel, without much problems, and plumbing it wouldn't be a problem either. It's just on the JAZ web site it states their tanks are not DOT approved. So it's the MOT I'm concerned about.
    Like the filler neck, it would be inside the boot, and the battery is already in the boot, I know it has to be vented outside the car, but I don't want to make another filler hole, or try to make use of the original.
    But I can't find anywhere that tells me what the law is about this?????

    What size and shape is the hole for it? What style of car? They should really dictate what you use, but if you want to use a JAZ fuel cell, many have done so without a problem.

    Fuel Tank

    What do you use for a fuel tank.
    I need to replace the fuel tank in my car, and I was thinking a JAZ fuel cell, instead of a standard replacement.
    What do you think, is it legal?? on paper they seem better.
