Re: Replacing Fuel Tank

I ended up using some Kevlar reinforced Fire hose. I was going to use strapping and the hose to protect the tank from the metal but the hose alone works great

Of course, The guage will be grounded. Under the old Tank it was a dirty Mess, I de Greased and cleaned it as I will have to epoxy in a wood base for the new tank to sit on.

Do ground the fill tube fittings and the fuel gauge sender.

Mine is plastic, and the tank itself is not grounded that I've seen.

Mine is also attached with stainless steel, and no problems there

But I'll be at the boat in a day or two and can look closer.

What does your boat look under the old tank?

Replacing Fuel Tank

I am replacing the old Stainless fuel tank on my boat with a plastic Moeller tank and have a few questions.
#1 I assume that it being plastic it doesn't need to be grounded (there is no ground point.
#2 For sequring the tank down I plan to use stainless straps. Is this a good idea or should I use something else. I figured Put some padding under the straps to prevent Chaff.
