Navigating a fuel system build for a project vehicle has many different areas that need to be addressed, and one of the biggest (literally) is the fuel tank itself. You could be facing a situation where the stock tank won’t be enough because of the fueling requirements of an engine, so you’ll need to step up to something more robust. Classic Performance Products (CPP) offers Hybrid Aluminum Fuel Tanks that work with carbureted and fuel injected applications.
One of the things that set the CPP Hybrid Aluminum tank apart from others is how well it’s built. The tanks are made from 5051 aluminum that’s .125-inches thick and is fully TIG-welded. CPP offers these tanks in a larger size for each application to provide an increased fuel capacity — a huge bonus for those who like to drive their vehicle a lot. Inside, the tanks have plenty of baffling to keep fuel starvation issues to a minimum.
It’s one thing to have a big tank that’s made well, but what about other features and amenities? Well, CPP made sure its Hybrid Aluminum Fuel Tanks have plenty of extras standard so they will work with just about any application. The tanks have mounting flanges that are set up to accept a drop-in fuel pump, fuel filter, and sending unit. These tanks have been designed to use both an external or internal pump depending on what kind of fuel system you need to use. CPP also offers an EFI Fuel Tank Install Kit for the Hybrid Aluminum Fuel Tank to make switching to fuel injection a breeze.
