Project Unimog - Fuel Tank Takes Shape

Fuel Tank Evolves From Cardboard To Aluminum

Work continues on our fuel tank project for the Mercedes Unimog. We have fabricated an aluminum tank to replace the stock small steel tank that is standard on the Mog. Several weeks ago we posted photos of the tank in cardboard form. Since then we have tack welded and test fitted the aluminum version. The next step will be to final weld, cut and install the pick up and sender units and build custom mounts to install on the vehicle. If all goes well the tank should be functioning very soon.

 Meanwhile all of the drivetrain parts have arrived from Germany and we expect the axle re-ratio and re installation will be complete this week.  Stay tuned to see if we get the expected speed increase out of her.
