Jaguar E Type aluminium / alloy long range tanks.

Jaguar E Type 120 litre FIA tank

I make two sizes of aluminium long range tanks to suit the E Type Jaguar.

The first is an approximately 100 litres capacity long range tank which will fit under the standard boot floor boards and connects to the standard filler cap. 

The second is the lightweight style with the external filler cap and is approximately 132 litres capacity.

I am happy to make the tanks with variations and to also make them conforming to FIA race specification.

I would happily compare these tanks to any others on the market and the photographs show the quality of my work.

 

E Type Jaguar Long Range, Touring fuel / petrol / gas tank to fit under boot floor.

Jaguar E Type large tank 1 resized

This is a large aluminium baffled fuel tank which fills the whole area beneath the boot flooring, but allows that flooring to be in place giving a standard appearance.

The capacity is approx 100 litres.

It uses the standard filler cap location and the standard sender unit.

Normally when a flat topped tank has fittings welded to it, that panel then distorts and can then let the appearance of the tank down. Therefore I have wheeled some three dimensional shape onto the top panel of this tank and it’s appearance is without doubt the best available.

The sender unit mount is a machined unit which is welded in place on the inside. It comes complete with a new gasket and x6 stainless steel retaining bolts and washers.

The fuel pick up sits in a lower sump (with the drain plug).  The design ensures a constant fuel supply during cornering and acceleration. Please see the picture of the sump lower down this page.

The sump is designed to be protected from lighter road debris, or stones from a race circuit’s gravel trap, by an aluminium cover.

The example shown above has a -6 AN Aeroquip style fuel outlet, and a breather. I can make the tank with whatever fittings are required.

E Type Jaguar Long Range Lightweight FIA aluminium fuel / petrol / gas tank.

I am making high quality long range aluminium fuel tanks to suit race E Types or lightweight replicas. They are safety foam filled and eligible for FIA events, and are copies of examples fitted to original race cars.

The capacity is approx 132 litres.

The best version of the tank uses the 3 1/2″ alloy fuel cap which protrudes through the rear boot lid. The neck to the cap is riveted. The internals of the foam filled tank are designed to allow quick refuelling without the usual fuel splash back and/or back pressure causing the fuel pump nozzle to constantly ‘click off’.

The tank can be fitted with a standard E Type sender unit if required.

The fuel pick up sits in a lower sump (with the drain plug).  The design ensures a constant fuel supply during cornering and acceleration. 

These are the best available in both design and construction.

Please contact to discuss your required specification.

I can make these tanks with your chosen fittings and design.

Previous customers specifications have included:-

Twin fuel pickups rather than a single pickup.

Either push on or threaded (usually -8AN) connections.

FIA compliant safety foam with a standard E Type sender unit.

The tank constructed suitable for fuel injection.

Single or twin breathers, threaded if required to allow for fitting of roll over valve (FIA requirement).

Jaguar E Type FIA filler cap arrangement.

The picture above shows a hidden screw filler cap within the large lightweight style flip cap. It is an FIA race requirement that the filler cap is within the bodywork of the vehicle and the screw cap is within that bodywork. This design is proven, and accepted by race scrutineers. Refuelling is an easy procedure.

The picture clearly shows the quality.

Below are a selection of other E Type fuel tanks that I have made.

 

This is 100 litre safety foam filled race tank.

This is a modified version of the 100 litre tank which allows for a small storage space on the drivers side of the tank. The tank is safety foam filled and for a developed road going car.

Jaguar E-Type Bonnets

Aluminium e type bonnet 1

On behalf of a colleague I am able to offer aluminium bonnets to suit the series 1 and 2 E type Jaguars.

Low drag bonnets also available.

These are of the highest quality and certainly the best that you will find.
