Re: Increased fuel capacity

We have one also that’s not installed.  Part of the kit we have for sale.  It’s 20 gal.

Awesome to finally see one of the prefab tanks!! I've only ever gathered the little bit of information in QAC Newsletter #15:

NUMBER: Q2BT35
DATE: 26 January, 1982

Q2 and Quickie prefabricated fuel tank; This fuel tank is manufactured with the forward face about 3.5” higher than what is shown in the basic plans. This fact will allow more fuel capacity, if desired. Be sure to check first pilot and passenger legroom, particularly if you are tall. It may also be necessary to build a tunnel for the pitch control arm. The builder can, of course, use the plan provided template to reduce the fuel tank height to the standard figure.


I imagine the warnings above would still apply today?
