Brand new tank for our DL3? Yuppers, MCI has it, all right nothing less then $4500 (delivered of course, and that is solid aluminum like ours currently is). That was worst case scenario when I drilled two neat little holes in it, with two self tapping screws, when I was having a big stupid moment.

It was very nice that we were able to get it heli-arced (sp).

God bless,

John

Caylor Supply in KS has them for $700 + shipping!

We have an '86 102A3...."billboard'' that dad said we could sell the tank out of for $500.00 + shipping (we might even be able to help transport it or use the busnut transfer system!)
We know it's good too, as we just pumped the remaining fuel out of it a week ago! FWIW

Hi Mike,

Just so you know, The 102A & C busses use the same fuel tanks as the MC9's..

Guess how I Know This.... BTDT Fuel Leak. In the end, I had my original tank repaired and reinstalled it.

Widens your search a bit..

Good Luck
