Perhaps the most important part of your fuel delivery system is the fuel tank, since it is where all your fuel is stored until it needs to be used. Of course, fuel is a very dangerous substance capable of exploding if it is not stored correctly, so you need to check your fuel tank periodically and take action if you discover any problems. Knowing this, you might be pleasantly surprised to find that replacing a fuel tank is actually not that difficult.

You have to keep your fuel tank in top shape because it doesn't only store fuel for use when you need it, but it also makes sure the fuel won't leak or catch fire. It goes without saying that if your fuel tank isn't at its best, the problems can be nasty and expensive to deal with. To keep your fuel tank in the shape you need it to be in, you should check it regularly for obvious problems and avoid driving over things that could damage it.

And it is at risk from being driven over things because it is to be found beneath the vehicle, usually under the trunk. It is normally black in color, and most modern fuel tanks are made of plastic, which allows them to sustain bumps and jolts without automatically receiving damage. They are always a strange shape, and you will often find that they are designed to fit around the rear axle, exhaust and other things that would otherwise be in the way. This means they are quite easy to find, so checking for problems is not as difficult as you might think.

That it is easy to check for problems is a good thing, because there are issues that can occur and they can be serious. One of such things is damage, which can occur if you drive over something that is high enough to touch. Despite the fact that they are made from a tough plastic material, a big enough hit can cause immediate damage and leave you stranded, not to mention the risk of fire. You can also damage it by putting the wrong fuel or another contaminate in it, which can result in you needing to drain the tank or even replace it completely.

To find out whether there is busted, you need to check the fuel tank itself, and areas on the ground near where the vehicle is parked. For a visual inspection of the tank, you can check to see whether there are any holes, deep scratches, tears or other flaws, which can quickly lead to serious leaks. If you do have a leak, you will usually be able to find it by looking at the ground underneath the tank after you have parked the vehicle for a short time. Of course, finding fuel on the ground means that the problem is severe.

    A Fuel tank sending unit is a term for the mechanical assembly inside your fuel tank which measures the level of liquid in the tank, then reports its findings to the fuel gauge on your instrument cluster. All sending units contain a "float" piece which does just what it describes - floats atop the surface of the fuel. Many automakers design the float piece as an attachment on a hinged arm that pivots as the level in the tank rises or drops. Others design the float piece as a cylinder that rides up and down around a metal shaft.

Fuel Tank For 1989 Ranger
I bought a fuel tank for a 1989 Ford Ranger. It was to be a direct fit application. It was the wrong size and would not fit the truck. CARiD was very good at arranging a return of the item.
