Fuel Tank Replacement


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I have a Esprit V8 1996 that needs to have the fuel tanks replaced.

Could you let me know if there are any suppliers for tanks?

Would be greatly appreciated.

Car is in Australia

Shipping costs won't be cheap and tanks aren't cheap from the specialists.

take the old tanks out and get a local fabrication guy to make you some. 

Food processing equipment manufacturers and dairy companies are the best to seek out. They must be pressure tested once built though - that's very important

I fitted Axminsiter tanks to my car. Superb quality, but not cheap, and you may have a long wait because the Andy is usually very busy. In my view it would be better to have them reproduced in Oz by an alloy or stainless specialist fabricator.

Margate Exotics.

Just ordered tanks for my V8 from Andy at Axminster, Based on his current work load he will start on them in May. As Ian says, excellent quality but not cheap. I am in New Zealand so shipping is expensive. A cheaper option would have been to have them fabricated locally but I don't intend to fit them until next year so nothing to give a fabricator as a sample.
