Fuel Tanks

In the 1970s, all fuel tanks were made of steel. Today, estimates say that 85% of newly registered vehicles in Europe and over 70./0 of cars built in North America have plastic tanks. Due to the ongoing harmonization of Indian standards with that of European Union, Indian auto manufacturers have started offering vehicles fitted with plastic fuel tanks.
