Custom aluminum fuel cell for 1970-76 Z. Does NOT fit the 77-78 Z. Tampa, Florida We hand make these aluminum fuel cells to fit similarly to the Original tank that came in the 240Z/260Z/280Z.They are not identical as you can see. But they are close to the original shape. Obviously, these are squared off rather than rounded on the edges, as such you will lose about 1 gallon of fuel capacity. We do not provide the fuel lines, hoses, or filler neck coupler. We recommend replacing them when you install this tank. Because we have been doing VQ35, VQ37, and VK56 swaps for so many years we have had customers request to have us help them with the fuel supply to their fuel injected Nissan engine that runs 50psi fuel pressure dead-head systems.. If you are interested in an internal fuel pump, we make those also... We created our own billet aluminum internal fuel pump assembly. It has the power and ground connections in the top of the fuel pump assembly (please look at the diagram provided). When we make these tanks we install the fuel pump into the fuel pump assembly. Then we add the 5/16 PTFE hose to the fuel pump and our PTFE hose has a -6an female fitting on it.
That fitting screws to the -6an male fitting inside the tank. Then fuel comes out the side of the tank JUST LIKE THE OEM 240Z fuel tank.... So we have a -6an feed welded to the side of the tank and a -8an return line welded to the side of the tank. This is set-up for a 240Z that is running carbs. This makes for a very simple install.These newer Nissan and Infiniti fuel systems run "dead head" fuel systems that would require an external fuel pump and external fuel pressure regulator to be used in a swap. With this tank you get a large capacity stock sized aluminum fuel cell. Also, the fuel sender inside our fuel pump assembly uses the same exact 0-90 Ohms of resistance the stock 240Z-260Z-280Z fuel gauge requires to function accurately!
These tanks are baffled to prevent sloshing while turning. They fit in the stock location with all factory straps... However, our tank is designed from the 75-76 280Z fuel tank.The 75-76 Fuel Tank is just slightly bigger than the original 70-73 240Z and the 74 260Z tanks. We also sell our Stain Steel replacement straps if you want them. No need to cut your wheel well out. We can also weld in a/n fittings for the guys that prefer them. You can simply tell me the sizes you want for pick-up and return. Call me at the number above. With any questions or to place and order. It takes us approx 3-4 weeks to produce one. We do NOT have them on the shelf ready to go. We have made and installed many of these with great success.
They are not a cheap square tank. BUT they are a great solution for the guy that wants an aluminum tank, needs to replace his rusted out stock tank and can't find a good one, or someone that simply doesn't want to cut up his rear undercarriage.We also offer these for the stock 240Z and 280Z for stock fuel system. These tanks cost a bit more because of the increased cost of the large upper flange and making all of the CNC parts for the fuel pump assembly.
