I have made 60+ of these fuel tanks in various forms and these have been sent throughout the world. I would happily compare the tanks that I make to any others on the market.

A note of caution. It has come to my attention that a company who supplies parts for Type 14s (to whom I have previously supplied tanks) has used the first picture below to advertise their inferior quality tanks.

Standard size fuel tank in aluminium. 

Lotus Elite standard resized

 

The standard tank in aluminium instead of steel, and fitted with a threaded fuel supply connector as per the original. The sender unit mount is a welded in boss instead of a mount stamped from the tank body as on other tanks, which then often leak.

Includes sender gasket and stainless steel allen headed bolts and washers.

The threaded outlet on the original tanks were either placed as in the picture above or next to the sender unit mount. I can place them in either position or elsewhere. 

Price; £525 (no vat to pay)

Postage. I’m happy to post these worldwide. The current postage price for insured shipping of the standard tank to the USA is £120. This needs to be confirmed when ordering.

Fuel Tank Stainless Steel Retaining Straps

These are stainless steel backed with heavy duty foam and can be made for either the standard size tank, 10 gallon or 13.64 gallon.

Price:   £40 (no vat) per pair.

Elite 10 gallon long range aluminium fuel tank.

Lotus Elite Type 14 10 gallon tank resized

This is a direct copy of the 10 gallon long range aluminium tank provided as an option by Lotus originally. As well as the brass fuel supply connector and sender unit mount as described above, the tank has the baffles bolted (brass bolts) in place (instead of welded) as per the original, and I can make and supply these with either the standard size diameter of fuel filler neck or with the very large diameter for the Le Mans style quick filler cap.

10 gallon (45.5 litres) long range race tank, safety foam filled. 

Lotus elite (type 14) foam filled race tank 1 resized

This is filled with safety foam so is suitable for use in international FIA events. With the addition of the safety foam you lose approx 2% capacity. The breather is on the filler neck (can be elsewhere) and the tank is fitted with either an Aeroquip style AN fitting (recommend -6 size), push on or threaded fitting for the fuel outlet.

Without sender unit mount, Price; £POA (no vat to pay).                                             

With sender unit mount and aluminium “cage” about movement to stop foam fouling it, Price; £POA (no vat to pay).

 

13.64 gallon (62 litres) very long range race tank, safety foam filled.

This is the Elite 13.64 gallon tank, safety foam filled tank which has a standard sender unit mount (comes as shown with new gasket and x6 stainless steel allen headed bolts and washers) and a protective aluminium “cage” for the sender units movement to stop the safety foam fouling it. There is an aluminium filler cap, a catch bowl with run off pipe, and a breather at the base of the filler neck. This tank was fitted with two -6 (dash 6) AN fuel supply fittings.
