42, The meaning of life
Yesterday i was made aware that the forward section of my Petrol (gas for the Americans ) tank has a 2 - 4 litre dent in the middle of its bottom section. The previous owner must have run over a rock or log. This obviously explains why my low fuel indicator comes on about 30' after I start loosing power:mad, its not so much a warning light as an explaination of why I am about to start dialling for Roadside assistance. Anyway back to the dented tank. Does anyone have any suggestions for undenting it? One friend suggested making up a bung with an air valve on it, half filling the tank with fuel and then pressurising it with compressed air in hope that it will pop back into shape? The other thought I had was getting a paintless dent remover with one of their dent removal suckers to try to attach to the tank and pull it back into shape? Any thoughts, suggestions or warnings?
