Shipping companies will not take fuel tanks. You would need to arrange for transport without putting the tank in a crate, and not in an enclosed trailer...which would be very expensive. OR...you could take a road trip to Minnesota!.....

100% True

Some people (gamblers) lie and don't tell the shipping company. Stupid move that will cost them dearly when caught.

It's a shame because I just send these cars to the boneyard with good tanks.

Good Question! Maybe there are some carriers that have a way to do it....but Fiero owners have had problems in the past.

Or take a road trip.

It won't be long before everything is shut down due to Covid again and you won't have anything better to do.

The last time things were shut down I drove all over the place looking for a new Kia Seltos in a particular way. Only found 3 in the northeast the way I wanted it. One sold before I could get to it, another the dealer wanted $3600.00 over sticker and the one I bought.

Cherry black and every single option available.

In this other Forum there is a post about shipping used, defumed, gas tanks via UPS, in most cases legally disclosed to the carrier (ignore the replies that encourage illegal cheating) .... Click Here
