The Story of a Kit Car Build

Fuel Tank

A move I can recommend to anyone completing a kit car build is to buy a copy of the SVA regulations book. One occasion when I needed it was when I was unsure of where to put the fuel tank. I thought they had to be behind the seats, or at least away from the rear of the car, but that’s not the case. You can put it where I did – which is under the boot floor – and as long as there’s some sort of heat shield between tank and exhaust, you’ll be OK.
