Lambretta Lifetime Tanks are made of polyethylene (HDPE). Polyethylene (HDPE) material is extremely lightweight and is ethanol resistance. Steel fuel tanks can be nice, they are tough but can suffer from interior rust, corrosion, and weld fatigue.
Long-range tanks especially can be difficult to fit often rubbing against the frame and causing excessive vibration. They also have a significant weight to them depending on the gauge of steel used. Fuel weighs plenty and you need a tank that is both light and strong.
These tanks have a 12-litre capacity for long-range touring or highly tuned, high performance engines where fuel economy is below standard and the cutouts on either side allow easier access for smoother routed cables, and you fit even the largest of carburettors with no interference.
These tanks can be also be painted and customized just as you would with any modern plastic automotive bodywork as long as they are prepped correctly.
Mounting is very simple and easy with the included hardware plus upper and lower dampening buffers providing a solid and secure tank.
Advantages of the Lifetime Tank:
- Impact resistant (near impossible to puncture)
- Rust resistant (no metal to corrode)
- Ethanol resistant (will not break down or swell)
- Light weight (quite possibly the lightest available)
- Easy installation
- No welds to fail
These tanks were originally made by Jet200 in the USA but since 2021 the Lambretta Lifetime Tanks are Made in Germany.
