These are the company’s first drop-in OEM replacement gas tanks for Jeeps that are designed to upfit and accommodate EFI systems. We’ll bet that most of you have never thought about your Jeep’s gas tank in terms of performance. It’s just there. It does its job. No need to think about. Tanks Incorporated is about to completely change your mind.
Tanks Inc. is a leading supplier of direct-fit applications for EFI conversions and carbureted street rods, muscle cars, and classic trucks. What’s that got to do with my Jeep you might ask? Well, with decades of experience manufacturing high-performance gas tanks for high-performance cars, Tanks Inc. is now offering the same high standards of fuel-delivery performance for 1973-1976 Jeep CJ-5s, 1978-1983 CJ-5s, 1978-1986 CJ-7s, and 1987-1990 Jeep Wranglers.
Tanks Inc. Origin Story
Tanks Inc. isn’t a start-up that came on to the automotive aftermarket gas tank scene just yesterday. There’s 30 years of top-flight engineering and genuine pursuit of quality in the products Tanks Inc. manufactures. It all began when the original owner of the company was working on making a gas tank for this 1927 T-bucket hot rod.
Decades of experience designing and building large, pressurized tanks used to scrub hazardous pollutants from factory emissions before they were emitted, was all the know how needed.
John Pazik knew he could build a gas tank for his hot rod that would perform like a modern gas tank was the easy part. The trick was sorting out how to efficiently deliver the fuel demands of a high-performance engine. That first gas tank not only fueled his hot rod, but it started the wheels spinning at Tanks Inc.
New Jeep Gas Tanks
Tanks Inc. three new gas tanks mark the first entry into the Jeep market with an EFI-ready product. Putting it simply, these are OEM replacements with the potential for upfitting to an EFI system. Even if you’re still running a carbureted engine in your Jeep, you can easily upgrade the fuel-delivery system for an EFI-fed powerplant at a later date.
All three new Jeep gas tanks utilize The Tank Inc. GPA Series fuel pumps. The GPA Series fuel pumps are available in delivery capabilities ranging from 109 to 450 liters per hour. The three new Jeep gas tanks also use aftermarket 5-bolt senders. Senders with multiple Ohm ranges are available to work with the factory (73-10 Ohm) or aftermarket gauges.
Inside the three new Tanks Inc. Jeep gas tanks you’ll find EFI-style internal baffling with an extra-large 4.8-liter dual-tube baffled fuel tray to prevent fuel pump starvation. The new gas tanks all have a 15-gallon capacity, are made from galvanized steel that’s powder coated silver, and measure 25.5 by 18.25 by 10 inches.
Fuel Pumps & Senders
The GPA Series Fuel Pump Module from Tanks Inc. is designed to be used in many of its gas tanks that have factory-installed reservoir trays. The tray is an absolute necessity for fuel-injection in order to prevent fuel starvation when accelerating and cornering.
These fuel pump modules are made in the USA, feature a heavy 10-gauge no-warp mounting plate, ¼-inch NPT supply and return line, barbed vent fitting, oven brazed fittings, and an in-tank wiring harness. The genuine Walbro fuel pump at the heart of the module can flow up to 100 PSI.
The optional fuel tank senders from Tanks Inc. mount with five screws, and they work on fuel tanks from 6- to 24-inches deep by being cut to length using the instructions included. Fuel tank senders read resistance to ground. Breaking it down further, they work on all 6- to 24-volt systems, with positive or negative ground.
