Many years ago we embarked on a process of building the only larger fuel tank for the Samurai. Over 15 months of labor went into making our first tanks. They have been great sellers over the years. One of the major slow downs to our GEN2 tanks were the custom built fuel pump hangers. So back to the drawing board and mold repair for yet a 3rd modification.
Our New GEN 3 improved tank now uses a commercially available fuel pump assembly hanger and pump out of a Ford Truck. This setup now makes it easier for you the customer to find replacement in tank pumps and hanger assemblies. The Non-Fuel pump tanks have the same assembly but can easily be converted into an in tank pump setup without having to buy a new tank.
Our 15 Gallon tank gives you 50% more fuel capacity. This tank is made from DOT approved Polyethylene. It will never rust or rot out. The 3/16 thick steel skid plate is Zinc plated and affords far better protection than the stock plate. Each tank includes a new sending unit and everything you will need for the installation.
The tanks are available in black and natural (Pictured) colors. The natural is slightly opaque so that the fuel level is visible when you look at it. This can be very comforting when you are trying to decide whether or not you have enough gas to do just one more section of trail or if there is any doubt as to the accuracy of the fuel gauge.
This tank is a direct replacement for non Fuel Injected cars.
When swapping in this tank it is a good opportunity to replace the Fuel Filler Hose.
W/O Skid Plate: 25"L x 13 1/2"W x 12"T
With Skid Plate: 25 1/4"L x 15"W x 12 1/2"T
NOTE: TANKS ARE BUILT TO ORDER. THERE IS AT LEAST A 3 DAY TURN AROUND TIME BEFORE SHIPPING.
THIS ITEM SHIPS AS AN OVERSIZED ITEM.

I have probably owned my 15 gallon tank for 10 years or so... I bought it to replace my OEM that had started to rust internally. The skid plate is strong and has bounced off several rocks through the years.
I had one issue once when I was at the coast and drove through a rather large tide pool. The pump shorted out because salt water had pooled on top of the tank. Once I figured out what happened and got the water off everything ran like it should and a couple waterproof connectors and some "paint on electrical tape" fixed it for good. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another but it's built so well I probably will never need to.

Well built. fits like a gloves, good skid plate. It's a chunk of money but it is worth it.
