    My 69 Dart gas tank was replaced sometime in the past. Before I bought it 16 years ago. Well here about 3 months ago I had to replace the sender/ pickup in it. While out I looked in the hole and the inside of the tank looks terrible. So I knew replacing it was in the near future. Today I filled the tank past the point of the grommet/filler neck and now I have a leak at the rubber grommet. So I figured now is the time to replace the tank and grommet. My question is who makes the tank and grommet to use. Who sells the best setup.

              I used AMD from Summit for the tank, sender, straps, and j-hooks. It's nice stuff.

                I’ve been very happy with the two Tanks Inc tanks I’ve purchased in the past year. Now I only did it because I was switching to EFI and they offer efi ready tanks.

                    I bought my filler neck seal/grommet off amazon for both the dart and charger. Haven’t had an issue.

                            Another vote here for the Spectra tank and sending unit/pickup.
                            It worked flawlessly from day one and is still working flawlessly 5 years later.........

                              You might want to look at their in tank elec. pump setup for carbs.
                              With a circulating line and the right press. regulator, it's good bye to heat and vapor lock.
