60 Litre Endurance Fuel Tank
Lotus Elise, Exige, 211, Europa, VX220 and V6 Exige Endurance 60ltr fuel tank.
Now confirmed to fit the new V6 Exige.
High capacity Anti Surge Alloy fuel tank 60 litres capacity.
Originally developed for the Dubai 24 hour race, this tank is just about as big as you can go in the lotus chassis without using a bag tank.
Anybody running a high powered Elise, VX220 or VX220 Turbo on track will know that the standard tank arrangement has a number of issues.
It allows the fuel to surge when making left hand corners; this can be a big problem on high revving on turbocharged cars where weak fuelling can cause terminal engine damage.
At 38 litres (8.27gallons) it has a very limited range, especially when used on a tuned car when the range can be as low as 125 miles.
The standard tank is made of steel; some of these are rusting and causing problems with filter blockage and fuel contamination.
Developed and tested on our own track day and a number of race cars, our long range Alloy tank allowed us to run right down to 3 litres without surge.
1. 60 litre capacity (standard 38 litres).
2. Internal collector assembly installed with Anti surge check valves.
3. Safety foam Type IV FIA polyether.
4. Light weight alloy construction (8.65 kilos).
5. Alloy construction will not corrode like the standard steel tank.
6. Utilises Standard fuel pump and sender unit.
7. Eliminates the need for external fuel swirl pots and collectors.
Simple installation using all original fittings and brackets.
Pump flange accepts standard pump assembly.
Available with central collector assembly for use on higher powered cars requiring an aftermarket gravity fed pump (click here for PDF diagram).
Fitting is really easy; our tanks are a direct replacement for the original item and all fixtures and fittings can be retained.
This tank and its variants are fast becoming the system of choice with race teams who may require the extra capacity without the expense of a bag tank.
