I was thinking of getting one from the "Scrap Yard" but then I
thought, a new jobber tank would last longer.
I guess the only problem I foresee with no drain plug, is if I ever
need to change it again, I would have to siphon gas out.
Just need to make sure I don't drink it.
unfortunately, gas tanks are a rare commodity from the wreckers.
heathens that they are, they don't bother unbolting the drain to empty
the tank, they simply pierce with a spike. dead tank. no sale.
thanks to detroit mainly - they frequently don't bother with drain
plugs, so piercing is the /only/ way. and once the habit is formed...
The fuel tank parts drawing for the 93 Civic accessible via
www.hondaautomotiveparts.com does indeed show a drain bolt.
(This surprised me, because I thought the custom was to
siphon gas out through the fuel filler when problems arose
with the fuel.)
