    I have a tanks inc fuel tank and pump on my 69 camaro but I can smell fuel so after I had an issue with the fuel pump I realized I had a small tiny pin hole leak on the nose from when they welded the piece on, it’s very small and after a while you can see the fuel soak through so I will not consider tanks Inc at all. At this point I rather pay more for a better quality tank

    What other efi tanks do you recommend?
    I’d like to stay in the 400-600 range for the pump and the tank.

    Car has an ls 1 and a t56 not that it matters but yeah

    Thanks in advance

    I have a "Ricks Tanks" unit. Extremely nice tank and helpful sales guy, but unfortunately, out of the price range you mentioned...

    I'm sure someone else will chime in with something more in your range. I did a lot of research before buying mine and I seem to remember some other decent ones out there for less $$.

    You could have a radiator shop fix the hole and add a Walbro 450. They have the means to boil and clean the tank enough to weld up the pinhole you found. Just a thought. Also use teflon lined fuel hose anywhere you need a flexible hose to eliminate the fuel smell.

    I suggest a Vaporworks/Ricks Hot Rod Tank. They have lower cost stamped tanks these days. Running a LS3 module is way nicer then the generic Walbro. I also have a LS3 module with the pressure regulator mod done. It’s like a $500 pump from Ricks. I’m selling it because I upgraded to the ZL1 pump.

    I used Rick's stainless as well.
    It is pricy, but a good piece.
    I got mine with front corners with 45 degree box in to make room for tail pipes.
    It worked good to get three inch exhaust out to the rear of the car.

    You know the tanks really are not that much money. It’s the modified fuel module and level sender. A stamped tank is the way to go and you can even buy it on Summit Racing.
