Radiator recovery tank

Plastic radiator recovery tank much better than the metal one that splits.

60.00 plus shipping.

Sorry Derek, but how is the plastic one better than the metal one? Please clarify.
Where does the metal one split?
I went through two plastic tanks before I went to Randy's (TDIGuy) Alisport tank.

The OEM metal ones eventually split on the seam.

So do the early (black) plastic ones…

That said I prefer the plastic ones to any of the metal ones as the metal gets hot enough to leave a mark if i touch it when at operating temperature - the plastic reminds you that it's full of scalding hot liquid without branding you - and the current clear version is super easy to check without opening while hot or cool...

Thanks, I never knew that (about the OEM metal ones), but I do know is my OEM plastic one split at the seam (twice). Sorry to mini-hijack and thanks for the specifics/correction.


@Myblutt-Good point about the plastic.

The nice thing about the metal ones is they use a regular radiator cap.

I think the old metal ones with the black paint removed and the brass polished up look cool. Never had a metal one fail but have had the plastics split. The reason the metal sucker burns you is the metal ones further dissipate heat, the plastic ones not so much.
