Our high quality VW Gas Tank fits 1968 to 1974 Standard Beetles and Karmann Ghias as well as 1973 to 1974 Things. The tank accepts the stock sending unit as well as the fuel tap and
in tank filter at the bottom. The fuel tank has the stock filler port and filler vent at rear right and a vent at the front left. The fuel filler hose, fuel tap, in tank
filter, along with a replacement sending unit and seal and the gas tank to body seal can be added to the tank by selecting the Installation Kit above.
The tank can be used on 1975 and later Beetles but does not have a return line as it wasn't intended to be used with a fuel injection system. More over, the separately
sold fuel tap isn't the correct size outlet. Just the same, the tank will bolt in place in the car, you'll just have to modify the fuel lines. If you have converted your
Beetle to carburetion, this isn't typically a major issue.
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!
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!
