rusty gas tank?

Is tank steel? When filling up my quad today I noticed when initially filling up fuel was discolored. Fuel was less than two weeks old. Its a new unit and Ive used the tank 2X. But filled my truck up with it prior to this.

I was thinking of at least adding an inline fuel filter of some sort if I can find one the same diameter of the line going to the pump. Has anyone done this?

My 222 gas comes out the same way. I use the fuel station to fill up my two 2000 generators and they manage to run just fine on it. I thought it was just the old gas that was in it but that makes me wonder if the tanks arenít of the highest quality. With the other things Iíve noticed I would not be surprised if the tank is rusting already.

There was a lot of complaints on this subject about 5 years ago. Might be worth a search. I feel like the issue was ethonal gas reacting with the hoses. But I could easily be wrong.

Gas stations up here run non ethanol everywhere so if that was the case then it would mean the gas up here is not being labeled accurately.

Hereís an inline filter for sediment if you get too fine of screen itíll effect fuel pressure. I installed this filter on my TV after removing the screens in the tank. Make sure you ONLY use fuel injected rated line and fuel injector hose clamps...no worm clamps!

The picture is of the mock up and finished, itís mounted on the inside of the frame.... I left extra hose in the event I need to replace the unit, I can simply snip off an 1.5Ē of hose, replace the housing and reinstall the hoses. The other option is to drop the tank again and that was a PITA!
