The powder coating is an external application, the inside of the tank is still raw aluminium with the powder coated version. For those customers that are concerned about Methanol induced corrosion of the aluminium, I suggest you opt for the anodized version instead.

 

The Meth' tank in the two pictures below has been anodized and subsequently dyed black. The anodizing process increases the surface thickness, of the naturally occurring rough layer of aluminium oxide. The carefully formed layer of aluminium oxide is substantially thicker and harder, making it very much resistant to Meth induced corrosion.

The anodizing process we use ensures the whole tank, in particular the inside is anodized. As such, it's completely resistant to Methanol induced corrosion.

The E92 tank below illustrates the internal baffle, that is also present on our E82 tanks to prevent cavitation of the Meth' pump when the tank is low in Methanol, or under extreme track conditions, so "sloshing" of the mixture is not a concern.

 

Rest assured if there is any Meth' in the tank whatsoever, the pump line will remain primed at all times. As such you will not see air in your lines, due to pump cavitation.

The pump location will be up to the discretion of the individual customer, but we have a few locations we can suggest based on the installs we have done thus far. The outlet for the Meth' line to the pump, is on the very bottom of the tank sump.

The Meth' line will be via any 1/8" NPT fitting you choose, that screws into the underside of the tank at the base of the sump.

The filler cap we are utilising is an "AERO 300" cap from Newton-Equipment. It is a flush mount cap of aviation-grade and tank "breathing" is provided by a vented spindle, which comprises part of the cap locking mechanism.

We have also implemented an upgraded ventilation system, on tanks employed within vehicles that have a high rate of Methanol flow. These particular tanks will feature an additional weld-in, for fastening of a threaded fitting that features a "roll over" check valve, with an attached nylon tube that will be placed within the trunk liner cavity for tank "breathing".We have used this ventilation method in the past with great success, on many of the Skyline GTR race cars that the workshop has built over the years.
