I had a thought why not build or get a tank built that just fits in the spare tire well and then use both tanks.
Why nut run a sump with an external pump properly mounted so as to not vibrate?Not to highjack this thread but has anyone found a tank for a wagon that will support stock ls fuel injection?
I'm sure you could fabricate something to work, with the original tank... maybe an inline fuel pump? But to further hijack my own thread, what bugs me is how there aren't any sending units/pickup tubes for wagons in the aftermarket.
That’s what I was looking for I would like a intake pump myself so I don’t hear it or feel it. I am unsure of the exact size of the tank.Why nut run a sump with an external pump properly mounted so as to not vibrate?
The current tank is 18 gallons, correct? Larger than a sedan or coupe?
Deeper isn't the issue. You don't want to go much deeper since it'll protrude too much under the bumper. You really want to go wider, or longer to either take up more of the width of the car (ie: into the spare tire tub) or more toward the front of the car (not really possible since the rear axle is right there). Only other option is to come up with some kind of insane system where you have a secondary tank that uses an electric pump on a trigger to refill the main tank when it gets past a certain point. So say for example, you put a spare tank in the spare tire tub with an electric fuel pump in it. When the main tank goes below say... 1/4 or so, that'll trigger the electric pump via the same kind of trigger that sets off your low alternator voltage light or something. That turns the pump on and refills the tank until it's above say... 1/2 tank.El Camino and wagons are different tanks.
I have the future plans to just fab a stainless of aluminum tank. Easy or cheap, probably not. You could always buy another tank from Spectra, cut the stock and the new up, weld together to make a deeper tank.
