NOS Spitfire fuel tank for sale

Post  Mk3rob on Fri Jun 09, 2017 8:22 pm

Triumph not Supermarine

Never used
Clean inside
Surface rust on outside

No gauge sender or attachments.

Specs say its 37.6 L or 10galls which doesnt add up

Tank length 32" (34 1/2 with attachment ring)
Tank width 10" (11 1/2 with attachment ring)
Tank height 9"

I have measured my Mk3 and it would fit between the rear wheel arches.

32 x 10 x 9 = 2880 cu. in.
2880 / 61 = 47.2 l
47.2 / 4.54 = 10.4 gal
So 10 gallons is a bit unlikely unless the tank is in the form of a rectangular box, but this might be where "10 gal" came from.  37.6 l (8.3 gal) sounds reasonable.

Incidentally I've heard of WWII drop tanks being recycled as motorbike bodies, but AFAIK Spitfires didn't have them
