About Fuel Tank Strapss
The fuel tank is one of the primary elements of the fuel system. It is a container, mounted on a bracket, which is used to store the petrol needed for internal combustion in the engine. Land Rover fuel tank straps are part of the fuel tank mounting system which helps to keep the fuel tank securely in place.
The fuel tank, and therefore also the fuel tank straps, is located on the opposite side of the vehicle to the engine for safety reasons. Fuel tank straps tend to be manufactured from stainless steel or rubber.
Strap material, end connector styles, length, thickness, and surface finishing are all vehicle dependent. Fitting the Land Rover fuel tank straps will ensure perfect compatibility with the make and model of your vehicle. Fuel tank straps are usually sold in pairs. It is essential to make sure the fuel tank straps are fastened into place securely and correctly; not too tight or too loose. If the fuel tank straps are fixed too tightly, this can dent or crush the fuel tank.
Rusted, warped, cracked or broken fuel tank straps should be replaced as soon as possible. Land Rover fuel tank straps are manufactured to be compatible with the make and model of your vehicle, offering the ideal replacement part. If the fuel tank is not kept securely in place or properly aligned this can be a fire hazard in a crash situation.
Land Rover trivia
- Land Rovers and James Bond go hand in hand. The 4x4 Land Rover has been in more Bond films than there have been Bond actors! In Spectre, the Defender SVX was customised with 37-inch tyres and more power.
- Land Rover was the two-decade standout winner of the Camel Trophy, a gruelling off-road challenge that sees vehicles compete in Siberia, the Sahara, Australia, and other hostile terrains.
- Land Rover was notorious for trying to find ways to avoid paying taxes and extended that to their customers too. They built the Defender 110 so that it could (just about) fit 12 people! Technically, that meant that they could class it as a bus, and owners didn't have to pay standard road tax.
- One of the most unique vehicles ever was the floating SUV designed and built by Land Rover. Unfortunately, the Floating Ninety Defender led many drivers to believe that their own Land Rovers could also float, and many cars were driven into lakes as a result.
- In the 1950s, you could buy yourself a Land Rover with tank tracks instead of wheels. Known as the Cuthbertson Version, it was intended for use by farmers and was tested by driving across the Scottish Highlands.
