    Yes, but it would really only work out to about a half gallon.

    That half gallon could make the difference in making it to the next gas station or not, though! :D

    Right on...I saw a T Coupe at a cruise a couple years ago and learned a few things...one thing for sure after running out of gas in my Coupe twice I have never done it again...I always fill it before it hits 1/4...

  7. Unbelievable. The tank fitted to a turtle deck, perfectly. Maybe one sock too many.

    "Tank" you for the tech' post.

    Interesting your bit set. I have a similar left hand turn 6" bit set, for aircraft. Wisconsin made. Love them.

    Nice work Paul, will the inside of the tank get coated with anything?

    Thanks,
    Probably not. Maybe.
    I'll keep an eye on it, if it shows any signs of rust I will have to do something about it.

    I was going to buy an aluminum fuel cell for my project but might try building a tank first. Just worried about the rust issue.

    If you decide to line the tank I've had really good luck with Caswell tank sealer. It's the only stuff I've found that will consistently hold up against ethanol.
