Lightbulb Low cost racing fuel tank

Low cost racing fuel tank

The tanks are made from old water fire extenguisher and used in our racing mini stocks not yet seen on the site.

They make a low cost racing tank, hold enough fuel for the stock car and autograss racing, and in the mini stocks we set them down through a hole in the rear window panel.

The inside is pulled out and ports made for fuel output and breather at the top.

Being round small and high, they don't give rise to fuel starvation on the rough as in autograss racing, or fast track cornering as in mini stock racing.

They save the need for alloy baffled and foam filled racing tanks costing up to 500-00 or more
