Nice product, poor packaging/shipping

June 12, 2015
I was very impressed with the quality of the fuel cell and the black powder coat looked great. My only problem was that when I received the fuel cell it was bent on all four corners of the upper flange. I would of returned it for a replacement but I needed it that weekend to race. I would of gave this product 5 stars if it want bent up when I received it.
Pros:
  • Great Powder Coated Paint
  • Easy To Install
  • Great price
Cons:
  • All 4 Corners Were Bent
Yes, I recommend this product.

Looked really nice and it works well

January 30, 2015
The fuel cell is good and it looks really nice. The only problem I had is the corner was bent when I got it. They took a lot of time to pack it in a box but it still got bent. But in all it's a good buy.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Check inside for leftover parts

July 17, 2012
I found an extra rubber gasket inside my new fuel cell, found it when I was trying to figure out where the pickup was...there was no instructions to tell me what corner they considered the right rear. No instruction to tell you how..or if you can install foam...nothing.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Merchant Response:

Thanks for the feedback! The pickup on this fuel cell is designed to pick up fuel from the right rear corner (passenger side) of the cell when it is mounted in the vehicle. To find the right rear corner, take off the cap, push the flapper valve down, and shine a light inside to look where pickup is. The widest part of tank should sit left-to-right in car and the side of the top plate with the fittings for the fuel lines should be on right side if the plate is installed correctly. You can use safety foam with this fuel cell.

25L X 19W X 11H (includes outer lip), can itself is one inch less in length and width so the can would be 24L X 18W X 11H.

You can shine a flashlight into the filler cap hole and find where the pickup tube runs to. The corner of the cell that the pickup tube is in will be the right rear corner of the fuel cell.
