      Works great

      It fits. It doesn’t leak. I kind of wish it was galvanized like the original tank but considering that my car is purely a summer time car, that is not nessesary. It’s worth the money.

      Perfect fit

      Fit in without any issue. Like other people have stated I did have to drill a hole for the filler neck bracket.
