Gas Tank and fuel pump - 07/31/09 12:58 PM

Im just wondering if there is a way to install a different gas tank as kia wants 400$ for one and there is no aftermarket made of yet. Plus is there a fuel pump that fits off any other vehicles. I think im having trouble with mine.

I moved the fill cap back in my cell and then mounted the pump and sender in the middle where the fill was. Some added wire and high pressure hose, and your done.

Just used self tapping screws to the rear floorpan. It does take up some space. But with a four door, i still have plenty of room. I used two by's to mount the brackets to to raise ii up right.

ok, want lots more info on this cuz it's exactly what i want to do...

need more pics of mounting, pics and descriptions of hoses and connections, electrical connections, if there is still room for the rear seats, if not, how much room does it actually take up, what you did for a gasket/seal between the kia pump/sending unit, if you had to drill extra holes...

basically everything...

thanks...
