Got a question?


what vw fuel tank interchangeable with a 1972 fastback,because I can’t find one any ware for a fastback.

Hi Edward,  I have never seen new gas tanks for the Type 3 offered.  The main options are to have your original tank cleaned and then use a coating to seal up the tank. You can get a gas tank cleaned at most radiator repair shops.  The most common sealant that I am aware of is the Por 15 gas tank sealant.  I googled this and found that is available from JEGS and even Walmart!

Option #2 is to find a good used tank.  Being that these are all going to be about the same age, you might be back to option #1 after buy a used tank!

Hope this helps,  Andy
