4x4 fuel tank

Yes this has been raised before but I find myself needing a metal 4x4 fuel tank in any condition from anywhere and any model. All it has to do is fit the gap and I can do the rest.

Any thoughts, help, links or ideas are welcome. I will consider anything and even the comment "I don't fancy your chances..." will be welcomed as positive support. HELP

I can probably supply you with a grotty one if you don't get a better offer Alik.

Re: 4x4 fuel tank

I've got a spare 4x4 metal tank available.

Any Sisley upholstery left for swapping?

Re: 4x4 fuel tank

Beige bits are exactly what I need please.. Can they be posted - cover fabric only of course.
Let me know a price for enough to repair a driver's seat.
Thanks V and A.

May be able to deliver tank next month if no rush for it- will be heading to Dover 10 or 11 June..

Re: 4x4 fuel tank

Wow what a response... I've had so many offers for something I thought was unobtainium I am overwhelmed and a little embarassed

So many offers in fact that I haven't been able to respond to everyone yet........... But.....

I have arranged for a tank from Allen Fletcher. He has other 4x4 parts I am interested in (although he might not know that yet...!)

Thankyou to everyone. I'm still at the evaluating and working out the logistics stage but I reckon we can save this one.
Thankyou Forum

Re: 4x4 fuel tank

@Alixcompo contacted me last week about a new 4x4 tank, with regards to asking my Italian friends if they could source any for our models with a carb. I thought my findings might be interesting for anyone else who's also after one...

Luca from panda4x4.info has told me that the carb fuel tank on the whole is as rare in Italy as it is here, especially as an after market part. A couple of the Italian Panda club members have bought a tank from this company a while ago through ebay...

http://stores.ebay.de/ATP-Autoteile/...16879x4747.0.0

...but they are a dutch firm and he is unable to communicate with them.

The main aftermarket supplier of the tanks is a firm called Pisano, and the tank is here...

http://www.ricambipisano.it/Serbatoi...-a-carburatore

Luca has very kindly been in touch with them via email and the part is no longer available! BUT he says that he may have a bit more luck if he phones them on our behalf to either find out if they would point us in the direction of a manufacturer or if they would be happy to take a bulk order and get a number of new tanks made just for us.

So from here I need to know please who would like a new tank so I can give Luca a rough number to bargain with?
