At some point I'll have one out of a diesel if there's no difference?

Hello Dean. Thanks for reply. Im on the understanding that they are the same. Can anyone confirm? I am now living in Cheltenham so not too far
from you. When do you think the tank will be available? Mark

Diesel tank is the same as in fuel-injected petrols, apart from the squirrel-filter in the suction pipe in diesel that has much bigger holes than petrol one. Difference between these two compared to carebburated BX tank is, that they have a "sump" or a lowered section where the suction pipe sits. I'm not sure if the suction/return pipe part is the same in both, or if it's taller in diesel/injected.

There was one being broken on eBay recently, whether they will want to remove the tank is another matter, it's not the easiest job. Sods law I scrapped a tzd shell with a tank in just a few weeks ago.

Hi Dean. I will not haggle for that price. When will it be convenient for me to pick the tank up? Do you have any other parts?

Hi Dean36014, I would be very interested in a front bumper if it has the lower splitter/spoiler on it.

Its just a standard shabby bumper i'm afraid. Its not an upper spec car, just a tgd with a posher interior fitted.
