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. 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 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. 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.
