Great article John. I've been wanting to install the gas tank in the back for quite a while now. I'm trying to figure out a way of installing it without removing the bed wood (with the exception of the filler). Anyone install one without removing everything? Would love to see pics for ideas.

I`m wondering if it is possible to mount the filler just under the bed (similar to having it behind the licence plate if there was one) to save cutting a hole in the floor for the filler? I think by dropping the tank a small amount I maybe able to do this but I haven`t looked into it yet.

Keisha,

go to the parts store or service station.... tell them you want to look at radiator hoses... they make all kinds of prebent hoses.... find one that suits your needs...diameter and angle... buy it... cut out what you need... and there you go...Bob's your uncle !!

I`m hoping to have the bends in the metal inlet tube so I can use a fairly straight piece of rubber tubing made for gas line use. Possibly another upper metal tube if needed for to complete the bends.....
At this point it`s only pipe dreams, we`ll see what happens as I get into it.

Neoprene hose ONLY is used for gasoline hoses and vent hoses.

Do NOT use radiator hose!

Vent Tip

We run dirt late models and all our cars fuel cells are equipped with the rollover valves mentioned. They come in several styles. Check out a few race parts suppliers for some options.

We run a short hose from the rollover valve towards the back of the car. The end of the hose gets an inline fuel filter (cheapo plastic case type) on the end of the hose to keep from getting dirt in the fuel cells. Put the filter on with a simple hose clamp and you will probably never have to worry about it again. If you have to change it, they are available at ANY parts store. Put it on so the flow of air going into the tank matches the flow of fuel arrow on the side of the filter.

Also, instead of welding on the tank, you can get rollover valves with a pair of sealing washers and a nut that goes on the inside of the tank (Check Speedway Motors). Drill the right size hole and the whole thing bolts in with no leaks. A lot safer for those that have already had fuel in their tanks.
