We can produce alloy racing and replica fuel tanks to just about any shape or size, working from drawings, samples, photographs or even on the car itself.

 

Pro Alloy Fuel Tanks are more than just an alloy box that holds fuel!

 

Most of our tanks have bolted aircraft type inspection plates and are filled with internal collector systems and poly ether safety foam.

Why should I have safety foam in my fuel tank?

It isn’t absolutely essential to have safety foam but it’s definitely an advantage and it is what it says it is, ‘safety’ foam. The foam is designed to function essentially as a three dimensional fire screen. In a fuel tank the empty space above the fuel level may readily contain an explosive mixture of fuel vapour and air. It is in this area where an explosion can occur, should it be ignited by any source. Since the liquid itself does not explode, a completely filled tank is far less likely to explode than one that is not full. Obviously, the lower the fuel level in the tank, the greater the amount of explosive vapour present. When an ignition source is present (perhaps from a spark) the vapour adjacent to the spark ignites rapidly. This ignition in turn ignites the vapour around it creating a chain reaction. The safety foam prevents this chain reaction from occurring; instead, vapour ignition is confined to the area immediately around the ignition source.

The foam is also designed to help minimise fuel spray in the event of a fuel tank becoming ruptured during an accident, reducing the amount of fuel being sprayed around the vehicle.

The safety foam will also helps prevent rapid movement of fuel within the tank acting as a very efficient baffle.This foam is also compatible with methanol, unleaded, 4 star, diesel, oil, AV gas and water.

 

 

Do we keep standard fuel tanks in stock?

We do have a range of tanks for various makes and models which we can build and supply directly to the customer, these include our Lotus range of high capacity anti-surge tanks which have proven to be very popular and we often supply from stock. However we believe in designing and manufacturing products that perform without compromise so if you need something a little bit different let us know - We can make just about anything!.

We also fabricate our 'Pro Tank' range of fuel tanks, these are a standard item available in different lengths, but we discuss the requirements with you and adapt the design the suit the vehicle ensuring that details such as pick-up and return fittings are in the correct place to suit the plumbing installation and of the correct size to suit the pump and BHP requirements.
