Does that mean that you own one of these ACGB tanks?

If anyone here in the USA, has a ACGB tank I'd like to talk to you. I'm very interested in the said tank, perhaps somebody somewhere here in the USA has something similar to that Euro tank....If so please get back

I had a custom tank made for 2005 158" my sprinter, hold's 93 gallons... Total cost installed was $1200... You can get a custom tank made for much less.. If I wanted to remove the rear spare tire they could have made another 110 gallon tank to fit in the rear... for a total of 202 gallons... The rear tank would have cost about $1000... Find a local a shop that does custom tanks, you can probably get a much better deal and get lots more fuel storeage...

Lightbulb Re: ACGB Replacement Fuel Tanks

1500 euros was that with a full tank of fuel as well

You have set me thinking with the price of fuel in the UK I can start fuel smuggling like the americans did in the 1920's with probition fit a couple of these beauties run to the cheapest country and fill up for $2 superb.

not many shops can build dot legal aluminized tanks in the USA because of liability issues

I've called around here in the San Diego area, I haven't been able to find anyone that is interested in building me a custom tank, I even called ACGB in Europe the other day, told him that I knew of 3 people that were interested in placing an order, he hasn't gotten back and it's been over 7 days, seems to me that ACGB only likes big volume orders, who knows perhaps if we could get enough people on this forum to do a group order , they'd be more interested....

My 1982 Ford pickup (new then) only had a 12 gallon tank behind the seat. In a scrap yard I found a 45 gallon from a Dodge van that I mounted where the spare tyre was.
