How do I determine if I need to use a surge tank?

There are 2 common instances when a surge tank is a good option for your fuel system…

  1. When your car will be experiencing extreme G-forces when at the track, a surge tank supplies a “reserve” supply of fuel to avoid fuel starvation.  Most vehicles that drag race, road race and drift are all good candidates for a surge tank. 
  2. When you need to add additional fuel and do not want to replace the OE fuel tank or in-tank pump a surge tank can provide a very flexible and easy to install auxiliary fuel supply.
