    Okay I got an old Murray Riding Lawnmower (lawn tractor for the Southernese Impared) I'm trying to fix for my mom. The gas tank was cracked. So I had to take a hacksaw just to get it out. Yay for teh hacksaw :nice:

    Soooo... What can I use for a gas tank. I need something I can hook a fuel line up to and not worry about my mom driving it and it blowing up on her :scratch:

    I'm thinking a closed system overflow tank for a radiator... :shrug:

    Any suggestions welcomed :) :) :)


    PS: Happy Easter!!!

    I am sure that a small engine repair shop would have a suitable replacement.

    Just get a tank like you would use with a small outboard motor.

    That's what I was thinking. The new lawnmowers just have their tanks zip tied in :shrug:. My new Troy Built has a zip tied gas tank.

    Tried that

    That makes it almost 3 percent zip ties.

    I'd like to see the finished product for two reasons.
    1. I'll know who to call, should I ever need a fuel tank replaced on a lawnmower.
    2. Comedic purposes.
