It’s hard to believe that another Thursday is already upon us. If you’re like me, you’ve already planned what you’ll be working on this weekend. If that happens to involve a the fuel system in your hot rod, this is for you. This week’s history session revolves around that very subject, as we collaborate with Rick’s Tanks, to celebrate another editorial throwback and jump into the way back machine. Follow along as we open the Power Automedia vault that houses our vast collection of articles and revisit another great article.
In this Throwback Thursday, I’m taking a step back to January 2017, to bring you an article that you guys might have either forgotten about, or might not even know exists. Whichever the case, I am certain that you will enjoy this editorial trip back in time. So, without further ado, let’s take a look back at Rick’s Tanks: Building Fuelish Foundations For Street and Strip.
In the original article, we get some insight about how modern technology has helped improve hot rod fuel supply, and how enthusiasts can best utilize today’s technology for their application. We asked Hector Guerrero of Rick’s to tell us a little bit about their custom tanks and why we would need one for our application. “In many instances, our new RestoMod tank will suffice, but sometimes space, chassis design changes, or simply needing the ultimate in fuel supply, mandates that a custom tank be utilized,” he said. It’s good to have choices, but do you know what information is needed when making that choice?
For instance, have you ever thought about using an internally mounted fuel pump? There are serious benefits to be had by strategically placing the fuel pump inside the tank, and the original article dives into those benefits. Maybe your application needs a new fuel tank? The article even dives into how you can easily upgrade your fuel tank.
Check out the original article. You’ll be glad you did. The article gets into a lot of information about fuel delivery, and for that reason, I thought this a great piece for this week’s Throwback Thursday flashback.
