I'm happy to be the guinea pig, so long as it comes in at a reasonable/affordable price point.

It's either this or another custom boot tank that Michael is rocking, both are great but I like the stealthiness of this one.

Yeah I like the stealthiness as well and plus you get to keep your boot space too

Any picture of Michael's custom tank?

I'm happy to pay a premium for the Advan tank as a lot of R&D has gone into fabricating this design and getting it right. Price will still be a factor though, I definitely won't be paying twice as much for it but I'm confident Peter and Justin will come through.

I don't have photos of Michael but it's a neat design. I wouldn't say it's a stealth setup but it's to the side and out of the way. The biggest benefit is it holds around 8L.

I'm not concerned with capacity, as long as it holds at least 5-6L I'm happy

Yeah - hopefully is priced well !

I am not too concern with size as well as I barely spray as it is my WW tank can last a while before I need to refill.

I am using a pretty small nozzle (CM7) and a lot of freeway driving so hardly pumping meth.

Also, how is the tank secured? I see that you have made 2 holes on each side of the tank. Are we supposed to drill into the boot? I assume all this hardware is included. Black screws to match the anodized option
Hey Vinney,

those particular Cm fittings are quite good, as I have used them myself.

Ummm,

the tank "sump" is of course the lowest portion of the tank itself.

Let me have another close look today at how Peter has test fitted the E82 prototype tank and I will get back to you shortly.

Paul is booked in to have his Meth' kit installed on Thursday and will be of course using our E92 "stealth" tank.

I will be taking several photos to more clearly illustrate to you guys, how the tank and pump will be mounted and what other hardware is associated with the installation.

Please rest assured the finished project will indeed "look clean".

Hopefully we can get the production tank anodised and dyed today.

Cheers,

JD.

You chose the wrong tune by the looks of it Paul. Your a JB so you'll just have to wait.

Hey Paul,

I am not sure what you have organised with Pete, with regards the installation date of you Methnol injection system.

However I can tell you that I personally picked up your completed Meth' tank from Leon's last Friday, but it still needs to be anodized and dyed.

I did try to speak to Pete today to see where he was at with that, but he was having a tough day by all accounts and did not have time to chat.

I will be going down to Advan tomoz to discuss a few things with Pete and the boys, so I should have an update for you soon.

Cheers,

JD.

Hey Gents,

we have sourced a suitable workshop to complete the anodising of our aluminium Meth' tanks.

Whilst getting the E92 tank squared away has taken longer than expected, we should have the first production unit anodised by the end of next week.

Paul,

your tank will be the first cab off the rank and we appreciate your patience.

FYI,

given the increase in fabrication costs, your will be receiving the one and only tank at $545, all other tanks will be sold at the revised price which will be around $625 to $650 (pending the final anodising cost).

Cheers,

JD.

Hi Justin, when you get a chance can you take photos of the tank outlet (ie. the tank sump) and also the breather/vent?

Attached a pic of Michael meth tank with breather nipple on top (don't think he'll mind).

That's the first time I've seen Michael's tank in anodized. It looks really good!

That breather nipple is a great idea too, definitely needed on these tanks. Keen to see what Advan has come up with.

Agree, it look's very nice.

If you look at most fuel cell designs you will notice that a breather is quite important. I have a vaccum hose coming out of my WW cap to the wheel well for ventilation.
