Default Gas tank

Good possibility I'm looking at getting a new fuel tank for my 4 door 210 wagon. Who would be a good vendor that is pretty reasonable with a good service reputation? Seems that is about the only thing right now that is keeping it from running. Thanks for any feedback.

If I remember correctly, I got my tank and sending unit from Danchuk. Might find a cheaper place if you look on the net and ebay.
Now that is a replacement tank that is shaped just like the original. Fits a nomad, handyman, sedan delivery and all four door six passenger wagons.

The 9 passenger wagon is different.

There are also options for pressurized tanks and tanks with an internal pump if you are running fuel injection.

There is also an oversized tank if you remove the spare tire well. ( It holds something like 25 gallons.)

Lots of options, others will chime in.....

Got my Nomad tank from this guy, best price with free shipping. fit perfect. also went with a new sending unit from him as well. only thing i would recommend is using the better cork/rubber combo gasket and your original screws and brass washers if still in good shape. mine has not leaked yet but know what needs to be replaced if it does.

There are larger tanks that one does not have to remove the tire well to fit (25 gallon), and even larger ones, 29 gallon if my memory serves, if one removes the well.

I bought the cheapest tank I could find on the internet. It has been on the car for 5 years and looks great

Those are for non wagon's. I think the OP was for a 4 door wagon which is different than sedans.

You are absolutely correct. I stand corrected.

I bought my new tank from Tanks Inc. It seems fine.

You`ll need to inquire if they do wagon tanks
