Want to learn more about Fuel Tank repairs?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a fuel tank do?

The fuel tank in your car holds petrol, diesel, or bio-fuels. Further to that the fuel tank has components that record the amount of fuel left in the tank, and parts that aid the fuel flow to the engine.

What does a fuel tank replacement involve?

A mechanic will assess the situation around the fuel tank, they will then extract the fuel and remove the old tank. A new tank will be fitted, and advise will be provided on other parts that may need replacing. They will then make sure the fuel tank works and isn't leaking, finally a test drive will be carried if this is found to be necessary.

Can I do a fuel tank replacement myself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend a fuel tank replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of a faulty fuel tank?

Fuel tanks will usually show problems when they begin to leak. This may not be all the time, and can be caused at high speeds by the rattling of other components. Leaking can cause damage to other parts of your vehicle, and it will obviously hurt the fuel consumption of your vehicle.

How long will a fuel tank replacement take?

A fuel tank replacement usually takes around 3 hours, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace a fuel tank?

Fuel tanks will not need replacing unless they are faulty. Many fuel tanks are custom produced specifically for each model and housed near the rear axle, away from areas of the car that are easily damaged in the event of a crash. Recently manufacturers of fuel tanks have started to use high density plastics which are customised to maximise the fuel capacity.

How much does it cost to replace a fuel tank?

On average a fuel tank replacement costs around £450. Prices vary depending on your location, car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your fuel tank replaced by ClickMechanic by selecting your car at the top of this page!
