    Welcome to the forum, Peter.

    Escort van tanks are the proverbial hens teeth. I believe some Roadster owners have used Spridget tanks, which have the added benefit of using a Smiths sender so better compatibility with matching fuel gauges. Failing that I think the usual answer is to have one made up in alloy. Hopefully, Berlinetta owners will chime in with more advice specific to your car.

    I got an alloy tank made by OBP for my Berlinetta. I started a thread on fuel tanks but it never took off, if you look in general car chat page 14 it's there. There is a debate about biofuel and it's affect on alloy and some say stainless is a better bet.

    Hi,
    Very short notice but I have seen this on ebay.
    Item 124399221425 In Nottingham.
    I can't get there at the moment as it looks a good buy.
    Shame to see it disappear as there is just two hours left on the offer.
