Sice it is plastic, it is one of those things I wouldn't trust used. I replaced mine last year. Roversnorth has them I think

RN says NLA. Anyone know if NRC9225 is the right part #?

It's been parked all week since going up to Rausch Creek last weekend and only got to pressure washing it this weekend. I went and filled it up and gas started dripping out. At first It was minor and thought it was just leaking from the breather/return, and appeared to stop. When I got home (very short drive) I found it was still dripping. I relieved pressure from the cap and it started coming out at a pretty good pace. I did the drain pan dance, this time I transferred to my accord (drain pans were clean from the Janey incident)

My exhaust must have gotten tweaked while off-roading and was pressing up against the tank. It either only just burned through or mud was sealing it. I was almost empty before filling up, and since I had left my gas cap when filling up on the way there I assumed there had been some evaporation through the rag I had stuffed in there, but maybe it had been leaking before and was just low enough by the time I got home to not notice.

Have not dropped it yet to get the full extent of the damage but think it's a pretty good sized hole.

p.s.
If you work for the EPA, this and any references to other incidents of gas leaking out of fuel tanks are fiction, solely for entertainment purposes.

I've got a '94 and a '97 tank in great condition, but just mounted the '94- will the '97 work for you? This is a build up truck, so could use either, just being lazy.... PM if interested.

Thanks Dale. Email sent.

Does anyone know if there is any difference between the two (or at least if there would be any problem using the '97 tank in a '94)?

thanks,
charles

The 97 tank will work just fine.

I'd like the old damaged tank.

It is possible to "weld" repair your fuel tank.

Any links to details on how this is done? I know there are epoxys out there too for plastic. I still haven't pulled the tank yet and am weighing all options.

thanks,
charles

When I replaced my tank I was going to get it from Roversnorth but I didn't have the patience to wait so I had my local shop get it for me. Four Oaks in Santa Monica. I am sure if you call them they will help you out. FYI when I did mine I replaced everything, tank, pump, filler tube, breather tube, valves, cradle, bolts.

Thanks Barry but I have a new pump already and I'm trying to save money on this. I'll give the cradle and rear cross member some TLC while the tank is out though

I finally got around to pulling the tank today. Still considering trying to plastic weld it - maybe investing in one of these:

Can anyone confirm the rover plastic tanks are polyethelene? Any opinions welcome. Here is what the damage looks like:

Dale, does your tank have the heat shield?

thanks,
charles

That looks repairable to me. I don't know anything about those plastic welders, but it doesn't look too bad and I have seen perfect repairs of plastic bumpers that were much worse.

BTW, lemon juice is your friend. Wash your hands in it a couple times between hand washings and it will get rid of the gasoline smell. I hate it too, its awful!

Yeah I mean it holds gas. Last thing I would want is to spring a leak while going down the highway. If it makes you feel better I replaced mine and all I had was a hairline crack where one of the breather vcalves went in. Drove me nuts because when I filled up it would spill out and down the tank making a stinky mess.
