This brand new replacement gas tank fits the 1952-1955 Volkswagen Beetle. It is the exact shape and size of the original tank but is
made for a 60 millimeter gas cap, rather than the original 100 millimeter gas cap that is difficult to find. This is a high quality
replacement option for your classic VW Beetle.
Fuel Tanks should be thoroughly cleaned before installation. Some tanks are lined with cosmoline which can be cleaned out with MEK (Methyl-Ethyl-Ketone), Acetone or a similar solvent. Even if the tank is not lined, it is still important to clean out the tank. Manufacturing debris can clog your fuel lines, carburetor or fuel system!
Our high-quality reproduction fuel tanks look and fit just like the original German-made tanks and will last decades if properly maintained. These tanks are not cheap repops. They are the best available on the market and of excellent quality. Don’t waste your time and effort picking up a poor-fitting, thin-walled tank from our competitor that you’ll have to replace before you know it. Do the job right the first time and don’t worry about it for another 50 years!
