Your Isuzu fuel tank is a durable vehicle component, built to withstand the daily punishment that exposure to the elements can bring. The Isuzu fuel tank is mounted in the undercarriage of the vehicle, under the cargo area. In this position the Isuzu fuel tank is subject to the hazards of the road and the elements, taking quire a bit of harsh treatment. The water that collects on the road on rainy days, or the slush, snow, and road salt of the winter months splashes up from the tires to coat the Isuzu fuel tank with every mile you travel. The gravel and road debris kicked around by your tires often hits the Isuzu fuel tank to cause scratches and dents. Most models of the Isuzu fuel tank are provided with a corrosion resistant coating when they are manufactured to help in resisting the effects of such tough wear, but over time, with mile after mile of such punishment, this coating can begin to wear away, leaving your Isuzu fuel tank vulnerable to rust and corrosion. The areas damaged by road debris are often the starting point for corrosion, the moisture and road salt that the Isuzu fuel tank is constantly exposed to helping it along. As corrosion does its destructive work, the walls of the Isuzu fuel tank can develop small pinholes in the corroded areas, allowing moisture to contaminate the fuel supply, or the fuel to begin to leak out.
