Fuel Tank Manufacture

Postby spookefoote1956 » Wed Jun 19, 2019 7:02 pm

Hello again. I'm getting ready to design and fabricate the fuel tank for my modern flat-tanker. Any advice on steel guage would be much appreciated.

Cheers, Chris :beer:

Hi

I guess you will be bending simple corners and welding seams in which case I'd use 20 to 16 gauge depending on your welding skills.
