2001 Golf TDI with Custom Aluminum Spare Tire Tank
This is a spare tire conversion in a 2001 VW Golf TDI. The spare tire has been removed to make space for a 13 gallon aluminum vegetable oil fuel tank. The tank sits flush and has a recessed cut out for the sending unit. The tank also has a tube welded in the center to allow for mounting to the factory hardware that secures the OE spare tire. The fill for the tank is located behind the license plate allowing the owner to fill from outside the vehicle. The entire tank and heat exchanger are made of aluminum. The gauges are mounted in a steering column pod and the switch mounts in one of the factory knock-outs on the dash, leaving for a clean look inside the car with no exposed wires or factory parts damaged in the install process.
