Gas tank Question


Recommended Posts

I don't know how ignorant this question is, but I have to ask. My gas tank neck sits very low in regaurds to my gas lid on my 46. I just got the car and have not taken it to the pumps yet, but I am concerned about the pump reaching the opening of the tank. Is this common? What is the fix?

I'm glad you asked that question, Tinndn. The filler spout on my '47 is the same way. I had always wondered if I had the wrong tank. Apparently not.

The gas station nozzle will reach the spout just fine. The nice part is that spill-overs fall harmlessly to the ground rather than on your paint.
