My Fulvia Sport petrol tank is weeping fuel from the top, has anyone recently bought a new or refurbished tank as it looks as though mine has had a hard life, maybe caused by too many heavy things being carried in the boot. It looks the same as the Coupe and Saloon, appreciate confirmation. Is there anyone who makes them, I thought I remember reading that there was but I cannot find reference on the Forum pages.

Sport is the same as coupe. Make sure it has a return  pipe (S2). I think all the tanks are from the same source and all S2. You probably will need a new square section rubber sealing ring for the filler pipe junction.

Chris, is the tank repairable, either via sealant on the inside or welding on the outside after suitable cleaning and safety precautions observed?

Hi Neil, it has been repaired with some sealant previously but I think because of the weight of the spare wheel on top along with my tool bag and occasionally cases, that eventually the bouncing of the weight due to our road surfaces will again break the new sealant.  Also I think it looks like the tank is a recovered one as there is also some damage on the securing flange so I am going to bite the bullet and get a new one.

I bought one for my S2/3 Fulvia coupe in June this year from Autobella.  Excellent service, well made tank with excellent spec. and delivered the next day. A fair price too IMO.
