bmylez Well, Tom has done it on cars he owns and has done it to others' cars. Would he do it if it was extremely unsafe? No, because things that aren't having a fuel pump sitting lower than your tank at the rear-most part of your car, is unsafe and he told one guy to fix it. Fitting it in the stock location would also be a hassle to run a filler neck to. It's possible, just more involved.

IslandFocus I was trying to find out the dimensions but couldn't get an answer. I will probably be dropping my tank this weekend so I will take some measurements.

700whpfocus how deep, wide and long is the stock fuel tank? I am pretty sure there is a way you could get one made to the specs. Why couldn't you? I would rather keep it where the original fuel tank is. I don't think it matters if u are at the certain power levels. I do not see alot of drag cars with the fuel cell in the trunk. maybe i'm wrong. that is a place i do not want mine!

IslandFocus Not sure if it's safer in the hatch in the case of an accident. Stock location seems to be the safest place.

bmylez Yeah, if you're to the point that you need a fuel cell for your power needs, you shouldn't care about using your hatch. Not to mention, it's safer in there, and easier to get to.

IslandFocus I was looking at doing that but I can't seem to find one that is shallow enough. It would probably need to be about 6" high excluding the sump in order to have adequate clearance. Actually, ATL makes an 8 gallon "well cell" like pictured above that's only 6" high but probably won't be a good fit under the vehicle.

700whpfocus Has anyone done fuel return set up with the fuel cell under the car where the stock fuel tank is? Can't this be done?

IslandFocus Is there any way to get the original pics back up or does anyone else have any pics of what is needed to be done? Planning to start this by this weekend coming and the pics would be very helpful. Thanks!

Turbo Turtle tom posted the pics of his in the thread about the 413whp focus he built for a fellow ff member. here is a pic of the cell he used, which is also the cell i will be getting.

Tom i have a couple questions. is the line you have going up to the right the vent? and did you use the stock fuel gauge?
