the nuts and bolts and washers should be included for the clamps. It just made me break away and head to a hardware store while I was installing the tank.

Gas tank (poly)

June 18, 2010
I'm building a rat rod. And with the black color and the chrome brackets,It looks great against the flat black. And the width is just right for the frame rails.But it would be nicer with a chrome cap. But it does what I need. And works great.
Pros:
  • Sturdy Brackets
  • Very affordable
  • Works perfectly
Yes, I recommend this product.

Is this unit or ones similar capable of installing a sending unit so the fuel gauge works. I am installing a fuel tank in the trunk of a 32 coupe?

At this time we do not offer a fuel gauge to fit these cylindrical type fuel tanks. Many of our customers have had luck installing senders in these units, but it requires some customization and your success will depend on your abilities as a fabricator. If you would like to move to something that would make a sending unit installation easier you might consider one of our rectangular fuel cells.

Is the poly thickness durable enough for use as an open boat fuel tank? Is the durability of the walls equal to a common "take out" style open boat fuel tank? (It won't be taken in and out - I just want to be sure it doesn't puncture easily.)

These tanks are used in vehicles and hot rods of all types that absorb the rough rides on the highway and off road. The fuel line pickup needs to be supported or retained from flopping around and pulling the NPT fitting out of the tank during rough terrain or water.
