The XA's fuel tank is starting to seep, and on closer examination it looks to be corroding about lower entry level pipe and about the axel end of the tank. The car is in beter than mint nick too, and the fuel tank did get over looked when doing the engine.
Options are to do a drop tank, I've seen one on the https://www.americanautos.com.au
web site for $990 for an XA, is there any other place that does drop tanks for this price or less? Is the AmericanAutos drop tank worth while quality wise? Has any one got tips on a drop tank conversion? I know 140ltrs when petrol is cheap would go down nicely :> the other problem is will it effect the rear end that much (an extra 80+ kg's of petrol).
The other options are to a) weld in new walls, which is tricky coz of the point of seepage or b) replace it. I assume they are the same as the sedan tanks? I know for sure the ute won't fit.
I often do long range driving with a jery (gery?) can in the boot so a larger tank might be the go
