I've got a leaking fuel tank...

So I'll be making a trip out to the bone yard this week to find a replacement.

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what model years I can look for that have the same fuel tank as my 91.

Also, I'm not sure if it's a 17 or a 20 gallon, any way to tell for sure? My wife drives it mostly and she's never filled it to the top, especially now that it won't hold any more than 4 or 5 gallons without leaking.

Any help is appreciated. It's a 91 regular cab, 2WD, 2.3L I4.

It's so hard to tell what size of gas tank you have without actually looking at it because Rangers come with some many different sizes. For instance, I have a 92 with a 21 gallon tank, but my friend has a 89 with a 15 gallon tank.

However, I just did read a little thing that is interesting. Apparently, in 91, there was a re call on the gas tanks because they cracked.

Also, I just read that the 91 Explorers only came with the 19.3 Maybe that's the tank you have?


Here you go:

Although I don't totally agree because I have run my truck to almost dry and have put 20.7 gallons in mine.

Thanks for the info..

Though I just got an idea. I'm going to copy the Ford part number off it and feed it to my parts guy.. have him ID it and cross-reference it for any other vehicles that use the same part.

I couldn't find any info for a recalled fuel tank in 91; however, I'm really not surprised.. we all know how almost anything made of plastic in a Ford vehicle is bound to crack..
