    Default 240Z / 260Z Fuel Tanks

    Are there any reasons why I can't use a 240Z tank in an early 260Z car ? I presume that they have the same shape, the same support straps and outlets etc ? Were there any mods made on the tank for the electric fuel pump set-up on the 260Z ? Thanks.

    Have you checked out the archives? There should be plenty of info regarding your gas tank question, as this has been addressed many times. Please try the magic "Search" function.

    Tom, I have already done a search and I can't find any answers. The search results go back 12 months - how do I search in the 'archives' before then ?

    from the search menu, click on "advanced search"
    enter your search term
    click on the "find posts from" column, choose "a year ago"
    right next to that, chose "and older" from the drop down menu.

    when I searched "fuel tank" it showed 100 hits, the oldest from 10/18/06
