Lotus Esprit Fuel tank replacement
Lotus Esprit fuel tank replacement
Fuel tanks can get damaged, suffer a puncture or, over time, develop leaks. If you ever notice fuel leaking or a fuel smell from around the Lotus Esprit’s fuel tank - other than when you fill up - then have the fuel tank inspected as it may need to be replaced.
Most fuel tanks are positioned to the front of the rear axle. This is to keep it away from crumple zones on the Lotus Esprit - which is also why they stopped the fuel filler from being located at the rear of vehicles. Now they are all located on the side of the vehicle. The fuel filler cap is an important part of fuel storage and should be in good condition as it aids in keeping the fuel system working well on your Lotus Esprit.
An intact fuel tank is considered to be extremely safe. However, when leaks and damage occur, things start to get a little more dangerous. You will want to get your Lotus Esprit’s fuel tank fixed or replaced quickly.
Considering fuel costs and the environmental impact of leaking fuel, it has a high cost. Best not to let it slip through the cracks. However, the safety aspect of getting a faulty fuel tank replaced on a Lotus Esprit is an important point. Fuel is a flammable liquid and should be contained properly, so get it fixed straight away.
