  • Gas Tank Neck Extension

    Ok, haven't been to a gas station yet with the new car. Are these things handy to use? I have also seen a mirror with a magnet? Don't want to overfill on my first run.

    Personally i do not have a need for those. I shake out the nozzle real well before lifting it to fuel up. After fueling i shake it out at the fill neck opening and then turn it upside down. I also never fill my tanks to the top, usually 3/4 is as high as i go. My paint is to valuable for me to get fuel on it, and another thing to watch is try not to get it on the raised portion of the tank where the cap screws onto. That can promote paint peel in that area.
    Now yes there are folks that use the extensions>>>

      If your car has one of those spark arrestor screens in the tank, take it out. Makes filling the tank much easier.

        I have one of the extensions as out here we ONLY have those damned EPA nozzles and I can't hold all that hose up long enough to fill the tank. Made mine from a couple pieces of PVC pipe found at Home Depot.
        You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

          Mitch, You don't shake it more than three times do you?

          Fueled her up today, no worse than filling up a motorcycle. Except that you cannot see as well. No issues with removing the spark arrestor screen?
          We don't have the EPA nozzle in Ohio, but I did shake it also.

            I use one of these, keep the sparks arrestor screen in place and it works great

              Nabco, I have one of those for my '28 with screen in place and never could get the O-ring to move past the lip of the neck and seat, the reason I built one out of PVC that fits!

            My neighbor uses two pot holders sewn together, places the material down on tank, then rest nozzle on the pad. Let the nozzle drain for a few seconds prior to removal. As stated drain nozzle on ground, this is what i do before filling up my bike.

              With the windshield open, I filled Minerva from inside the car, at least I could see the GAS GUAGE thingy!

                Gas filler extension
                by Chuck Sea/Tac
                I got an aggressive fuel pump nozzle yesterday and I could see the spray splatter coming out of the tank neck. To make it worse, when I set the nozzle above the tank and tilted it down to insert, a tablespoon of gas came out. Lacquer doesn’t like ethanol. I AM buying a pad that sets over the tank to protect when filling.
                I was wondering what people’s experience and thoughts are on the extension...

                Gas Tank Rust Removal
                by CSPIDY
                Finally got around to addressing the rust in the gas tank of my 28 Tudor.
                the plan is to remove it, fill it with 10 gallons of Evaporust, clean with Por-15 cleaner degreaser, then prep with the Por-15 metal prep, followed with Por-15 paint coating.
                what are your thoughts? I have heard good reports on the Por-15 paint but have some reservations using an internal coating.
                any advise...

                YARGTT ( Yet Another Rusty Gas Tank Thread )
                by cpf240
                I've been following the various threads here on how members have been dealing with rusty fuel tanks. While I'd love to pull the tank and ship it off to Brent, that will have to wait.
                The Rust911 concentrate should arrive today. After a PM session over FB ( Facebook, not the ) with the Rust911 people, I'll be picking up 10 gallons of distilled water to use in the process.

                Gas Tank Screen Restriction During Refueling
                by Fordfan29
                After years of driving my 29 without the factory screen in the gas tank filler neck, I finally installed one. Now when I refuel, getting that last couple of gallons in the tank is tedious. There is no way to slowly fill the tank with most automatic shutoff nozzles. The factory screen does not let the fuel flow through it fast enough. Has anyone cut the bottom out of the screen & does this...

                Way too much rust in my tank so got some Rust911 off Amazon coming. Since it is concentrated I will fill the whole tank. I'm not taking the tank out. I have a glass sediment bowl and trying to think of a way to hook a hose up to use when I drain the tank. Not looking at taking inside fuel line off....

                Gas tank welding
                by pAAt
                Getting ready to weld my tank up. It's been aired out for a few weeks and I did fill with water and rinsed out. It's been drying a few days and should be ok to weld. I drilled the spot welds off the Instrument cluster mounting bracket/wire harness (?? yellow arrow) and have a good one to tack on. I figured I'll dill some 1/4" holes to mig weld back on tank. Any thoughts on doing this and...
