It is confusing when you donlt use the "quote" feature. Makes everthing look like you are the author of everythin in the post.

Does a kit ad really belong in this discussion/list of cheapest parts?

It's not a Jetta, it's a Greasecar *kit* for a Jetta - here's the first line of Omar's post: Greasecar WVO Vege Oil Kit for Jetta, NB, Golf, Passat

Even though I wouldn't suject my Jetta to such a thing, if I had a Jetta, it seems helpful for Omar to have posted it.

That is a good source of snap disk thermostats. That page has a link to the data sheet. Make sure that you order the correct one for your needs. They have both normally open and normally closed models. Also if you are using it for temperature control, get the narrowest differance between open and closed for the most precise control.

Or buy a tried and true Vegtherm with Bosch 50A relay, auto-resetting circuit breaker, marine-grade wire, top quality crimp-on connectors, and mounting clips - and instructions, and have no worries about burned out glowplugs. Mega's are on sale for $139: http://www.plantdrive.com/shop/product.php?productid=16135

Description (revised)





SquareTrade © AP6.0
This "buy-it-now" store auction is for a new, very heavy-duty, 16 GA., 15 Gallon (net), near-universal fuel tank for long wheel-base, wideside Chevy, Dodge, or Ford pickups. They are made to fit just about all of them from the '80s through 2005, will fit either side, and allow about 48 1/2" of width after installation in the bed for plywood sheets, etc. If you have a very new Dodge or Ford, you may have to cut off or unbolt a side tie-down which protrudes into the bed.

We do not know of another in-bed "saddle" tank like this being made today.

The tank is set up with a 1/2" female NP (pipe) outlet which can be used to draw fuel, either front or back. There is a vented cap, and an "evap" fitting on top which the pictures do not show.. They are vanilla-plain, and designed to handle diesel, gasoline, biodiesel, WVO ("veggie" oil), ULO, etc.

We sell them as an in-bed storage tank, and we have heard reports of customers using them for auxiliary fuel tanks.

The tank you receive will have the top and bottom mount tabs set within 6" of the side of the tank, both side and bottom.

When I set mine up, I used heavy self-tapping 1" long screws with fender washers, and they work perfectly. You could also use bolts, etc.

The tank is 7"X32"X17." They are made from special anti-corrosion steel which is used for this purpose.

If you have any questions, please email or call me, Joel, sawyer@pacifier(dot)com, or C503-470-0271.

We also have lower-cost tanks which are 22 and 29 gallons available for $195 and $295 respectively. They are made for different applications, and can be easily bolted into a pickup, but will not fit as neatly.

This tank weighs 28 pounds, and we would prefer it be picked up at the depot in Portland, Oregon. We can ship, but will have to charge $20 to wrap and protect the tank for shipment, sorry.

Here is a very similar RCI aluminum tank I used in my truck. The filler fitting on the top comes off and is real easy to mount a heated pickup in it. Much lower price than the above tank, and it has a level sender installed.

price per gallon seems to be much more expensive.

How do you figure that? Mine is 17 gal. for $269, the one omar linked is 15 gal. for $395.

The nice thing with either one is you still get full use of the bed to carry 4x8 loads.

*cough cough* 395??? pardon my lack of reading english...lol

I read the "22 and 29 gallons available for $195 and $295 respectively." and mistook that for pricing. thanks for the follow-up/correction.

That reminded me of something I have. Geo Metros and Suzuki Swifts with A/C have a similar temp switch to shut off the A/C when the engine overheats. It has normally closed contacts that open at (I think) 225°F. I think they would work good for controlling electric fuel heaters. The threads are 1/8" BSPT, which will work in a 1/8" NPT port. Look for them on the intake manifolds of the cars. They have one terminal and are larger than the similar-looking gauge sending unit. Other cars might have the same thing, but I haven't noticed.
