        Great product!

        The tank arrived quickly and fit great! The original tank has a bent corner. I was hesitant about it being an issue since this new tank did not. It was not an issue at all, tank comes with a seal and screws as well!

        Great Replacement Tank

        Very solid, heavy gauge replacement fuel tank. Only noticeable difference from OEM, and doesn't affect the install, are the areas at seams where the original had the extra metal upturned. They are just cut off on replacement.

        4 2001 Bullitt - Dennis

        Good Tank, Especially For the Price

        The tank worked as expected, It was clean and had little red stoppers for the holes and came with bolts and a gasket for the fuel pump. The only thing I would have to mention is that this tank does NOT have the bend up piece of metal like the stock tank does on the most left side lip (if you're looking at the picture in this ad) This does not cause a fitment issue but that bend up part of the lip holds a little metal bracket that secures some EVAP tubes. I ended up bending the bracket some to accommodate the flat lip.

        Fuel Tank

        This fuel tank is a perfect replacement for my 2001 Mustang V6. My previous fuel tank had rusted out and was leaking. This shipped quick as usual from American Muscle. Comes with everything shown. I would definitely recommend to anyone who needs a new fuel tank. Thanks Again AM!

        Great 03-04 Cobra up-grade or replacement gas tank.

        I have purchased 2 of these tanks now, they are great for a up-graded fuel system, specifically a return type fuel system. You can purchase this tank, and a Aeromotive A1000 for the 03-04 Cobra and simply drop the pump in, without modification. You now have a fuel system capable of about 1100hp, depending on the type of power adder. I choose to run all Aeromotive hardware, with 14111 rails and 13101 regulator. We have done this on our own drag/street car and I have done it for one customer so far. It makes a very clean, easy install, with no multiple pumps, hats or anything else. Best way to go as far as I'm concerned.

      Use on 03/04 cobra Does this tank have the right baffles in it for the cobra dual pumps?

      • No it does not. Tank is not deep enough for the twin pumps and you would have to break out the pump bracket to accommodate the twin pumps as they are attached to the hat and the gt/mach1 pump is not.

      Picture does not exactly look like my fuel tank Your image of the 01-04 fuel tank does not exactly look like what is currently on my car. The holes are in the correct area, however, on the left and right side of the tank, the metal in bent up so it can fit under the car. Your photo does not represent this. Additionally, does the tank come with the installed holder inside the fuel tank for the placement and subsequent locking in of the fuel pump assembly.

      • The edges that are bent up on the stock tank serve no purpose they were simply cut to long and they was bent up to fit. The reason you do not see them on this tank is because they are cut shorter and they fit right in.
