I sort of posted this as a question on my build tread (http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ild-58134.html) but though I'd ask here if anyone had any tips on how / where to fit the GM Fuel Tank pressure sensor into the rear mount plastic defender tank? Many Thanks. James

What's it look like, my Gen III doesn't have one...

I don't have a pic of mine but here is a link to one on eBay (NEW Fuel Pump Tank Vapor Vent Evap Pressure Sensor AS302 16238399 | eBay) It is not required for the correct running of the engine but is is needed for California and Australian emissions inspections I'm guessing I just drill a suitable sized hole in the top of the tank a push it in but I would like to know first! I'm also pondering weather I could fit it to the first vapor canister mounted on the defender chassis rail. Really as long as its not throwing fault codes or leaking fuel then neither I or I suspect my engineer could really give a s**t

I'd try it in the canister first, doesn't look that it'll be that fuel tight if it's just a push fit into a hole in the tank.

My understanding is that the tanks that work with that sensor have a raised portion (air space) that remains above the fuel level. I do not believe the sensor is made to be submerged in the fuel as it has more to do with vapor. My plan is to insert a metal tube in the rubber filler neck and put it there. I am far from knowledgeable but that is the idea I could come up with and the emissions guy agreed that it would be acceptable for the purpose of the inspection.

Fwiw Nick is in Cali and would be the best person to answer since he has first hand experience dealing with the emissions people in Cali

Slightly different puzzles but perfectly possible... see my 50th build!

Thanks for the info Nick, I think mounting it in the first canister thing that my 50th has on the chassis rail should fit the bill. The sensor will not see fuel but will read tank pressure... I will have a play and update my build thread with the results

The longer (and better) this thread becomes, the more it makes me want to spend a bunch of $$$.

I have the 6.2 in my pickup and couldnt imagine it in a 90.

I've always been a diesel fan but seeing something like that has me thinking of the possibilities....

I would love to see a kit for a D2.....an 04 with a reliable drivetrain able to withstand long travel and heavy usage would definitely be the ticket for me

Yes. Same dimensions, different material.
