The fuel tanks in classic GM musclecars are pushing 50 years old and are not set up to handle an in-tank fuel pump for use with electronic fuel injection. A brand new Tanks, Inc. fuel tank and matching GPA fuel pump module from Summit Racing is practically a drop-in solution to fuel delivery issues.
Tanks Inc. fuel tanks are made from die-stamped heavy gauge galvanized steel with a protective silver powdercoat finish. The tanks have EFI style internal baffling and an extra large internal fuel tray built in to prevent fuel pump starvation. The optional fuel pump and sender are recessed in the tank for easy installation with no modifications needed—the tank will look like OEM from the outside. Tanks Inc. even includes mounting straps with most fuel tanks, plus O-ring gaskets and screws for the fuel pump and sending unit.
Summit Racing has fuel tanks for these vehicles:
- 1964-72 GM A-body
- 1967-73 Camaro and Firebird
- 1962-72 Chevy II/Nova
- 1955-57 Chevy
- 1964.5-68 Mustang
The GPA Series Fuel Pump Modules are designed for use with Tanks Inc. fuel tanks, put can be retrofitted to other tanks. They feature Walbro high-performance electric pumps in 190, 255, and 400 liters per hour (lph) ratings. The heavy 10-gauge, zinc-plated mounting plate contains fittings for the supply, return, and vent lines plus the electrical connector. The internal wiring harness, supply line, return line, filter sock, and insulator sleeve are included.
You’ll also need a fuel level sending unit. The Tanks Inc. sending units work on fuel tanks that are six to 24 inches deep—simply cut it to length. The sending units have a high-quality ceramic board rheostat for durability and work with all 6-24 volt electrical systems, positive or negative ground. The units are available in 0-90 ohm (1965-up GM), 0-30 ohm (pre-1965 GM), 240-33 ohm (Stewart Warner and other aftermarket gauges), and 10-180 ohm (VDO) versions.
Summit Racing has those from Tanks Inc.fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter, and fuel rail adapters for enthusiasts building a fuel system from scratch.
