Most "Keg" fuel systems in modern street/strip hot rods are technically illegal. Federal standards require far more than a fill port and an exit at the bottom. A complete NO,NO, for any street vehicle.

"Kegs" can only be used that are obtained from a scrap yard with documentation. All others remain property of the brewery. State and local laws protect these companies.

For years I was involved with the beverage industry and saw law suits pertaining to illegal use of "Kegs" and also "Milk crates". Fines can be stiff, if you p1ss off the wrong people..

A friend of mine has one on his Model "A" tudor, it's been on it since he got the car when he was 15, he's 60 now. never been stopped once, and he goes all over in it. Not too far on a keg full, as it is a small keg.

It fairly simple to get around the ownership thing, and do so legally. Just go to your local distributor and buy an old keg from them. You'll have a receipt and all is well. Kegs need to have a vent connection and outlet welded into them, and if possible baffles around the pickup to eliminate gas from sloshing and moving away from the outlet under cornering or acceleration.

I had one on a t-bucket, see my journal. I bought the car this way, it had an inlet epoxied onto the tank, probably cut from a tank for a diesel truck and formed to the tank. IMO, it was butt ugly, a Moon type of tank would have looked nicer.

A friend of mine bought an aftermarket tank for the bed of his Austin gasser pickup. It's a long aluminum with stands and looks really nice. The whole thing was only about $140 from a place on Ebay.
