  1. I can't get more than 6 gallons into my tank

    V6 Tech
    Hi, I'm new to this forum & seem to have a unique problem. I've got a 65 Mustang & I can't get more than 20-odd litres (5-6 gallons) in, before it starts coming out of the filler pipe. I've tried all the old tricks to remove air locks, to no avail. I'm pretty sure the sender unit is working...

    I bought a fuel tank kit from mustangs unlimited. Should I paint the bottom of the gas tank before I put it in, in order to prevent rust. Also what sealant should I use to put the gas tank in?

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Can someone explain to me why I am only averaging 12.8mpg (18L/100KM) in my 2011 v6. All my driving is in the city and I currently have 3:31 gears. On a full tank of gas I get 200 miles (321km). Thanks

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    I recently installed a UCI on a 2010 Mustang GT. While I was under the car I noticed this (in the picture). For orientation, the fuel line is in the center, the exhaust is on the left, the panhard brace is bottom/left, to the right I think is the spare tire well. As you can see the...

    I changed the gasket twice w/o removing tank. I was concerned gasket wasn't seating so I removed tank and tried again with no luck. Should I replace sending unit? It's hard to say where gas is actually coming from.
