Plastic gas tank street legal ?

7450 Views 13 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Dubster
I just got a Clark 2.7 gal. gas tank and have not put it on yet. I have read a lot of the post and they are very informative. I also did not like my logo so opted to get a plastic tank (black) and I found white vinyl tuning fork logo stickers I think will look cool on it. My question , are the plastic

tanks street legal and will they pass inspection. On the bottom of the tank it says " for off road use

only " Is the Clark Co. just covering its butt or is there a reason the plastic tank is not as safe on the road as a metal tank ?

Wow that was detailed.

Quick answer is no its not technically street legal (supposedly because of the expensive testing required) and yes to cover their butts.

No cop is going to look under the tank and you should be just fine. If an inspection is required and it worries you, throw the old tank back on long enough for the inspection.
