The cell I used is an ATL D cell (or "well cell as its nicknamed"),,, a
relatively new product, designed for installation in cars with a spare tire
well,,, they didn't have many out in the market place when I bought mine,,,
they asked me to send them pictures of mine installed!
Its 12 Gallon cap. Cost was $395.00. I bought it direct from ATL... no one had
any other than them. Its not even in their catalog yet. Now I understand
Truechoice is carrying it.
Instead of going the very expensive Earls/Russells/Aeroquip route on fuel
lines I went with a braided nylon coated hose that is used for fuel and
hydraulic lines on heavy equipment. As you will see its black, so the
"poseability ratio" is quite low,,, but so is the price. Its got great
specs,,, the guys at the hydraulic shop made up the lines for me to my
measurements and crimped them in their machine. Burst pressure is 1000 PSI,
Max working pressure is 250 PSI,,, I am at a 4:1 safety ratio on the working
pressure and over 10:1 on the burst. I figure if its good enough for
bulldozers and heavy construction equipment it will be OK on my little old
race car. Total cost on all my line & fittings was like $60 or less,,, all
made up. I did have to go to Earls / Truechoice for some special adapters M12
- 6AN for the fuel filter and pump, also a one way check valve to keep the
pump side pressurized so starting was easier. Everything is 6AN (37°)
fittings and line. I used lots of rubber coated clamps and wire ties to
eliminated flex and chafing. I also used some 3/4" heater hose as additional
abrasion protection anywhere the hoses "may" have contacted anything.
