4x4 fuel tank and filler pipe swappable with non 4x4

Hey guys and girls,

Thought it would be a good idea to make a new thread (after using the search feature i might add) asking if the filler pipe and tank from a carbed 2x4 would all fit into a 4x4 panda?

I ask this as now you cant get the 4x4 fuel tanks in the uk (without importing one from italy for big money) if it is doable.

You reckon the round filler pipe would rub over the oval one? even though the oval is bigger?

Anyone have both pandas that could do a quick measure and see if the 2x4's filler pipe would rub on a 4x4's wheels for me?

If it does not, a standard 2x4 panda tank and filler pipe could be used xD

Thanks guys!

2wd has the omega axle so mounting points may be an issue. I'm away for 12 days now so can't check this for you at the moment John, but will when I get back if you're not sorted.

Thanks for the response, i was looking at the older mk 1 panda/marbella fuel tanks.

in pictures they all seem to match up however i just wondered, with the fuel filler being a different shape if it would fit on a 4x4 :/

General consensus is they won't fit (been there and done that!) but feel free to try
