I didn't get an image, but Google "replacement gas tanks" and you'll get several suppliers that have tanks from many different cars that have photos. You can also get a universal sending unit and adapt it to your tank. JCW has them, around $20 shipping included. You just need to know the manufacturer or ohm range of the gauge. Search the JCW site for "fuel level", not sending unit, to find it.

I don't know what it is but from the looks of finish on the tank it has not been sitting under a vehicle. That as well as the mounting holes that are visible and the position of the sending unit leads me to believe it a in cab mounted truck tank. Any other opinions? Hopes this helps a bit.

I betcha its a 58-64 Chevy tank.......sits upright right behind the rear axle.

Although, I dont remember them having 2 openings. I believe gas lines and sender were all in one unit.

I would guess something emissions era, it looks like it has three lines coming off of the sender.

identify gas tank?????

When you say sending unit are you talking about the unit on the side of the tank ot the center of the tank. Another guess - The center unit looks to have 3 openings which leads me to believe that one is a vent and the other two are for fuel lines. Could this be a newer tank with a supply line and a return line for a fuel injected motor?

I went to that Quanta site that 73Oldsman posted a link to, and actually looked at almost all of the GM passenger car tanks. None of them that I saw looked like that one.

Is there anything on the tank that would help to identify it at all? Embossed or stamped logos, numbers, words ... anything? (Even a munufacturer name would help)

You might try removing the sending unit itself, and looking for any type of ID #'s on it. Maybe even post a picture of it.

We deal with a company called Spectra Premium as well, who has a pretty good pictorial reference section. Unfortunately, that catalog doesn't appear to be available for download from thier website at this time.

Looking closer and thinking about it some more, I'm beginning to think "import".

-I think I see an "ND" which may indicate "Nippon-Denso"?

As others have pointed out:
- The sending unit is seperate from the outlet. Most domestics that I have ever seen integrate the sending unit and outlets

-The tank is mounted vertically, with a side filler neck ... implying either behind the rear seat or in-cab. I would think in-cab, due to the lack of rust.

Arguments against that theory are:
1.) In-cab tanks usually have a large mounting pad area that the tank "sits" on. They want the tank well-insulated against squeaks in the passenger compartment.
2.) Being that the tank has return line provisions hints at the possibility that it is off of something fairly modern. To my knowledge, mfr's are no longer putting fuel tanks in passenger compartments due to safety concerns?

I just ran both of those numbers through SPI's on-line c/ref and came up empty.

Anything there that suggests a manufacturer?

Where did you find the "KE30KR"?

That sure does look like a gas tank from a B-body wagon. Its possible that its from a 65 Impala WAGON. But I agree with what someone else said; too many hoses for a 65. I would also say that it couldn't be that old because its a Nippon Denso, but they made replacement tanks. It could be an aftermarket replacement for a slightly older tank, but I don't think even the california cars got all those Evap hoses until 70-71
