Forgot to mention the tank is made from aluminum and weighs about the same as the original tank!

Default Danchuk 25 gal. Aluminum Gas Tank

Looks nice
I was thinking of doing that as well. Is the tank the same depth of stock tank. Wondering if I can use same sending unit as stock tank

The tank is deeper however you should not be able to see it from the back. A new sending unit is required as well as some slight plumbing changes.

That 25 gal tank was well worth the investment, I love it.

I made an access cover in the trunk of my car so I can easily change the fuel pump sending unit etc, without removing the tank.

I cut an additional opening at the top of the tank to put in an electric fuel pump.

The tank has baffles in it, you can stand on the tank and it does not have any give at all.


It fit perfect, no mods needed

I had my own thread going at: https://www.trifive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=98051

I bought the Universal Sender at the same time I bought the tank at Danchuk. It is a 0-30 ohm like the stock sender so I can keep the original gauge. It is fully adjustable and I had to put it on close to the shortest setting for the 8 1/2" depth tank.

I bought the jumbo 29 gallon for my wagon and will begin the install this week. I bought the universal 30 ohm sender and I'm thinking of putting in a cover and ring for a submersible fuel pump , just in case I might go to EFI in the future. I'd rather do this now as the tank is clean.

When we went to install the body back on the frame the old tank mounts were in the way of the new bracket so we had to cut those off. If you installed the kit with the body on it would have been apparent much earlier.

After we got the body on I cut about 7" off the original one piece 56' filler neck and used the included adapter, hoses and clamps to get it all back together. As a side note, I had the original bracket and filler neck/pipe powder coated in black while it was out of the car.

Once I get gas in it and get the wiring done in April I will continue the post with the gauge readings and final comments.

Funny place to mount the gas tank Tim.....Reminds me of the old Ford firewall mounted gas tank.


Never mind....I see you changed your mind
