Fuel tank replacement?

Postby chronicnetpro » Mon Oct 07, 2019 2:45 pm

Hey, all.
I put a hand primer and an inline fuel filter on my pup. That worked well, but now I am changing out that little filter, like, daily. And it's coming up really black. So, I'm sure my fuel tank is full of crud. I would just buy a new fuel tank, but of course, they are no longer available. I would swap in a new fuel tank for another Isuzu vehicle, but no way to see what fits. I did not know there was a 19 gallon tank available, and would use that... if it fits. Don't want to try to pull the tank and clean it, as that will be slow, and I'm using this for my primary work vehicle, so it has to stay available.

If anybody has any info on sources, or alternative tanks that will fit, your input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Steve
