Default Source for fuel tank and sending unit on 240

Well attempted to install a DW200 today in my project rustbucket. And it lived up to its name when I pulled the sender out. I see a bunch of different priced fuel tanks online wondering whats a aftermarket vendor. Same thing for the fuel tank sending unit I see them for $60ish bucks or $90. I dont need a fuel pump so ill save a few bucks.

Vendors for a sending unit and gas tank on a 85 240 wagon are appreciated.

Might want to try the WANTED forum on this site.

Reproduction tanks are available at such places as RockAuto pretty inexpensively. Shipping for a tank is going to be the killer.

Since you want one without rust I would suggest that you buy reproduction.

On my 19 year storage Bertone I had pumped the tank dry but the PO's Volvo Certified Master Oil Change Technician, Elroy, had removed the lift pump and bent the pick up tube going back in so that the last gallon was never pumped out.



Here is what the last gallon of gas that came out of my Bertone restoration looked like:

I put an aftermarket sending unit in my grey car a couple months ago. I went and drilled out holes in the sending unit so I could run 6an feed and return lines. The stock return is fine but the 7/16" feed line is stupid.

Don't use an aftermarket tank if you can avoid it. They don't have a surge tank, any baffling or even a well around the pickup. At least the early repro tank I got didn't. Maybe the later tanks are better.

Aftermarket senders are OK, as long as you know that the in tank pump is wired backwards.

My $180 repo tank from RockAuto had the well around the pick up area. I will have to admit ignorance of the 'serge tank' you refer to.

I sent an OE tank fedex to Texas for less than $50.



Those repops are tinny, poorly made and poorly galvanized, but they're cheap.

Typically they rust through and fail internally at the seams even the OE tanks in bad climates.

Ill keep that in mind about the baffling. And I did prematurely order a DW200 fuel pump not thinking the sending unit was going to be 87% rust lol ill be sure to wire it up correctly.
