Fuel tanks are an integral part of a vehicle. It serves as the storeroom of the fuel because it is where the fuel is gathered and released into the engine. As we operate our vehicle and as we press on our accelerator, the fuel revs up the engine to produced power. Standard components of all Mitsubishi fuel tanks include fuel filler pipe, fuel outlet line and a vent system. The filler pipe prevents the leaded fuel from entering into the fuel system while the fuel lines transports the fuel from the tank to the engine.
Nowadays, fuel tanks have internal baffles to prevent the fuel from sloshing back and forth. These internal baffles are used to avert the fuel from splattering into the fuel system of the vehicle. Fuel tanks must also have strong resistance against corrosion to avert dangerous spills. It must not be too bulky as to take much of the vehicle's space and weight; it must be in perspective with the vehicles dimensions.
In the early days, fuel tanks were located higher than the engine with the thought of letting the fuel to just flow through. But when climbing uphill, the fuel flows back. So today, most fuel tanks can be found at the rear of the chassis under the trunk compartment to avoid that thing to happen, though there are also some vehicles where their fuel tanks are mounted at the forward compartment.
If you feel like your car's engine is performing as though it has an air leak, even if you have sealed the engine with gasket sealant and replaced all the fuel tubing, your problem might be a leaky Mitsubishi fuel tank. In this case, you should check the tank. The slightest defect on the fuel tanks and its components might just be the cause of accidents, so if possible proper care should be given to your Mitsubishi fuel tanks.
