Portable Fuel Tanks
Replacing your old outboard portable fuel tank isn't as easy as it used to be. Manufacturers have responded to the new EPA regulations for low permeation with very different compliance solutions that are not always compatible. Not to worry. Wholesale Marine not only carries a wide variety of portable gas tanks, but also has the experts on staff to help you to select the right portable fuel tank for your needs. Below are some of the leading manufacturers along with the fuel tank adaptations they’ve made
Wholesale Marine Carries the Top Brands in Portable Fuel Tanks
Moeller is well-regarded marine manufacturer that purchased the Tempo brand several years back. Their models utilize a self-venting fuel cap. The cap is designed to release pressure when it exceeds 5.5 psi. This design may not be the cheapest to start with, but you don't have the added expense of replacing your fuel line. Confirmed: your existing fuel line will work with no problems. Take a look at their top-of-the-line 29 Gallon Kerosene Walker Tank. It was designed for ease of use and will provide years of reliable service.
Attwood Marine has taken a different approach with their outboard gas tank. Their cap doesn't vent so they incorporated a fuel demand valve on the fuel line. This demand valve is designed to regulate the increased pressure from a non-venting tank and therefore prevents engine flooding. This system is currently used by many popular boat builders. Attwood’s 12-Gallon EPA-Approved Fuel Tank exceeds OEM standards and reduces wear on fuel pumps thereby improving engine performance. For worry free performance we recommend also purchasing the Attwood fuel line with the demand valve.
Scepter’s 9-Gallon Rectangular Portable Fuel Tank is ethanol and alcohol-compliant, in addition it means EDP/ABYC and Carb-standards. This portable tank accepts standard ¼ NPT marine tank fittings and has been fitted with an automatic air inflow valve to prevent gas vapor build-up.
