Custom fuel tank

Does anybody know of a place that makes alloy custom fuel tanks at a decent price, the one in my stylus weighs a bloody tonne, it's stainless steel and made of 1/4 " plate by the feel of it. I'm Essex based but don't mind a travel or by post

Hmm see I'm going to say I'm glad you have a sturdy stainless tank, got one made for my JBA Falcon due to its exposed position at the back, even got it filled with foam. If there is one thing I don't mind being over engineered is a fuel tank..

It had been said that a gallon of petrol has the energy of 83 sticks of dynamite

Used ARF (http://www.alloyracingfabrications.com) for a oil catch tank and a header tank and both spot on a a good price. I will be asking them to quote to remake my fuel tank once I get around to that job

You would need to post it but Rich will take some beating on price

There's a guy on Ebay who does custom sized tanks, he's in Nottingham and posts them. This is one of his current listings, but he will quote on any size;

I also know a guy that had a couple of custom tanks for his Jago Jeeps from these guys and it was very well made and the best price he could find at the time http://www.allardaluminiumproducts.co.uk/

Another vote for http://www.alloyracingfabrications.com

Not local but I've used the remotely twice. Emailed him dimensions even though he had them for my westfield anyway and he checked them and agreed them.

Sent me the tank a week later by post all good.

Also fitted my sender.





Thanks
