fuel tank by joaquinn lopez, on Flickr

in the process of adding more volume to the tank

I plan to somehow make the Honda fuel level sender and mini fuel lever sender work together, the mini mount and Honda electric stuff together I guess I'm trying to say

If you're already welding on the tank, I suggest you ditch the Mini sender and float and put one of these in. I'm doing this to my VTEC Elf and it's awesome. No more leaking fuel around the sender seal. Just need to weld up the existing hole and weld a flat mounting plate (included with the new sender unit) to the top of the tank. TanksInc floatless sender You need to specify what resistance range your fuel gauge uses, so you can match it to a Honda gauge, or whatever you need.

Did you have to modify the float to work at 90 degrees from normal? Don't those Honda float units normally mount on the top of the tank?

I got the mini running with the Honda fuel tank now

I adapted the Honda filler neck to the mini filler neck inlet and I'm using the mini fuel tank cap

but I think the standard Honda fuel tank cap is a sealed cap

with the car running I reved the motor a few times and then
it started to pop and surge in rpm's

and then I put my vented mini fuel tank cap on and the popping from the exhaust and rpm surge stopped

I think I need to order a sealed mini fuel tank cap

Probably it is somewhere in the topic, but why right hand drive? Lack of space for the steeringrack?
