No I don't have one of the OLD models.
Mine is modified from the factory with a removeable trunk access opening.
I need to know from one of the +00 guys who have removed the fuel pump cannister with a fuell tank.



Here'* a peak at my hole. :P

how full? way past the "F", I would be careful since the filler tube sits higher than the fuel unit opening. If you have any air in the tank it will be fine, as that opening is the highest part of the tank. Be careful when your pulling that unit out, it doesnt come straight out.

Does that make sense? It sounds like a pretty crappy explanation to me

Yes it makes sense. That'* what I figure could be a problem. Worst case scenario is fuel spilled on my garage floor.......wouldn't be the first time.

Even if it was 1/4 tank, you still have to **** the fuel pump container which is always full of fuel, so you still have to syphon fuel out of it manually. I watched a dealership mechanic do it once when they replaced my level sensor under warranty..........but the fuel tank was 1/2 full.

Don't worry. When it comes to safety I'm used to spending half a day planning to avoid all potential disasters.

Always think about it over a brew.

I noticed that the fuel rails have that weird drum on them. When you bought them, did you request the drum knowing of some difference, or did you accidentally pick that up?

Also, that is a weird trunk hole. I didn't see it here so far, so I've got to ask: Is there an insulating cover to seal off the hole?

the drum is simply a fuel reserve.

there is an aluminum cover that is bolted down over the hole. the trunk carpet goes right over it. it is VERY nice to have.
