Location of fuel tank opening?


Recommended Posts

I'm intending to put a fuel catalyser in my car. All my previous cars enjoyed increase fuel economy after installation.

Anyone knows how I can access the fuel tank opening to drop this item in? I'm not talking about dropping it through the fuel filling opening :) I know it's infront of the driver somewhere....

And what is it and how does it work.

If you remove the battery tray you will see the top of the sender/pump and you need a special tool to remove the round locking ring.

Thanks :)

You can check out www.broquet.com for more info. It's basically something that reacts with the fuel to cause better combustion. There are 2 models, 1 which you drop in the fuel tank (in-tank) and the other which you connect to the fuel line (in-line). I've personally tried both and found the in-line model to yield no noticeable effect.

I know this all sounds too good to be true but it really works. If there's a dealer in US, give it a try. They're supposed to come with a 60 days money back guarantee. I returned my inline unit previously when it didn't give an effect :)

My main purpose is fuel economy which it has proven itself. Power gains that I'm skeptical. Did not bother to do any dyno to prove it.

In 1941 RAF engineer Henry Broquet noticed that the fuel in Russia was not sufficiently high enough quality for standard aircraft engines. So he put tin in the fuel, and now his company sells heterogeneous catalyst pellets that you can put in your 21st century car with 21st century fuels.

I will pass on this one.

Interesting that the fuel sender and the recess in the tank are underneath the battery tray. I just removed my tray to do an annual bat maintenance on it after my trouble with the battery-- baking soda'd the tray, removed some leaves, some powdered bat residue, steel brushed it, and painted bare metal spots with black touch up. I'm going to get some new stainless hardware to hold it in place too. Was thinking though . . .

WHAT IF the battery corrodes, the end user is a moron (ignores it and never maintains battery with dielectric grease, clean terminals, clean out gunk and residue) and the leakage spills into the sender recess and WHAT IF the recess is filled with gasoline from a bad union nut gasket? Instant poof? Just a scenario-- strange they put the bat box over the fuel tank, but where else?

As you know, there is a foam seal on the back of the tray. But if you had a hole in the tray then stuff could get to the electrical connections. I have seen only 1 or 2 trays that were corroded from acid. 10 years from now it may be an issue.
