I aquired a pre-made replica fuel tank with my chassis, Started preping it today with the filler & port holes. Looking inside the tank I noticed there were no dividers inside like shown on the naerc plans. I heard these are there to keep the fuel from sloshing around.

Do I need to cut the tank apart to add these or start from scratch with a new tank, please advice?

Hey Rod...

Check this out, fuel cell safety foam.

Keep your fuel from moving around the cell with these foam sticks from RCI. Just drop them in your fuel cell and go. Designed for drag racing or circle track racing, they will keep your fuel pump from being starved under hard acceleration or cornering. Use RCI fuel cell safety foam to get rid of any possibility of fuel slosh.

Rod,

The foam that RT is talking about, is what I am using in my chassisworks tank. They easy to put in and take it out if you ever need to replace them.

Something I just thought about if these foam blocks are inside the tank would the interfere with the fuel level sender??

I can't find any info that shows how they work inside the tank

Rod, I am sure they would interfere with a moving float.
They just fill up space. The pores fill with gas and prevent the sloshing. If there was a way to fit around the float or if you had a different way to detect the fuel level other than using a float, you wouldn't have a problem.
Anybody have a solution?

They are like big sponges. You just cut it around the area it will interfere. In my tank I do not use the float I use a non-float fuel level checker. It is a long rod that you need to cut to length of the tank. And i cut just the foam around the the rod is so i can place it inside tha tank. I am sure you can cut around where the float would be.

I will check my notes tomorrow so I can let you know what exactly is the name of that fuel level check device I am using.

Rod,

I actually found it. I got it while back from Fuel Safe. They have 3 different ones based on the length you need. You can shorten it yourself and then you simply recalibrate.

Hope that helps.
