This aluminium fuel tank was fitted with foam filled and fitted with a roll over valve to meet race regulations. The Monza cap was surrounded by a splash bowl but protruded outside the car bodywork. Race regulation stipulate that there must be a one way valve between the tank and the filler in such cases, therefore a screw cap was added under the monza cap and bodywork to meet this regulation. The fuel tank was also fitted with a fuel collector internally as there was no space for a sump. The fuel collector has one way valves to allow fuel in but not out and help to eliminate fuel surge without the use of a swirl pot.
