Fuel Tanks

One other little thing that seamed to repeatedly cause trouble during the year was that for some reason I kept having issues with the fuel tanks and during the event at Ebbw vale it became apparent that another fuel tank had developed leaks.


The original fuel tank (No1)

The staining on the tank indicates that its the welding that repeatedly fails on these tanks. This was the third tank fitted to the car in the space of a year. Suffice to say I did not replace the tank from the same supplier after this, so another new tank now resides in its place. The new tank uses straps to secure it rather that the brackets welded directly to the tank so I am hoping this will help reduce the stress loads.
