I do not, once you unclamp the filler hose just stuff a rag in it.
As for getting the fuel out theirs an intank pump sitting in a sump at the lowest part of the tank, theirs even a transfer hose to make sure both sides end up in the sump. Simply put two leads on the pump to a 12v batery charger and pump the fuel into the new tank before you transfer the pump over.

20L of fuel is ~14kg. 31 lbs.

FWIW.

And the "i" 65L tank doesn't have an in-tank transfer pump, only the high pressure pump, which is now a 255lph pump. :o That still might work though.

edit: or, that might be what you meant lol.

Where's your tech inspection getting done? I have to go bribe my indie to do mine...and maybe fix the leaks since my order won't be here on time either. Fudge.

I just ordered a front wheel bearing. I'm going to do it before the tech inspection too, if I have time. Sheesh, this is really kicking my ass.

ohh different from an "e" I had a low pressure in tank pump that pumped to the high pressure pump behind the drivers seat... assumed all e30's would be the same, geuss not.

Stand corrected for the fuel weight, still peanuts compared to benching your akward rear heavy tranny (geussing 75 lbs) up form your clutch job.

So, I drained the tank from the drain plug into a jerry can and put the gas in the Mini. It took about 3 cans to drain the 20L. Everything went fairly smoothly, but took a long time.

Anyway, the tank fit well and Capital Dominion was a pleasure to deal with. +1 for them.

Good for you!

My car is in for both sway bar links and CCV...should be ready to go after today. I'm thinking about picking up a set of spare pads just in case.

I also have to put in my motor and tranny mounts...anyone up for a tech night this Friday?

I needed tires too. I was hoping for one track down out of them but seeing them up on the hoist I realized how worn they were. Dunlop Z1 *s are coming in today woot.
