Hello Chris....You mentioned using an S-car gas tank to replace the 
rusty/faulty one on your 200-20v, and I am seeking a replacement tank for 
my 87 5000 CS turbo quattro.

I can't find a tank anywhere...and assume you encountered unobtainium in 
your quest and used the S-car tank because it was available.

Any idea about finding a replacement tank for my 87 5ktq would be helpful. 
Currently, a solution is to remove the tank and send it to a refurbisher in 

I even considered a generic plastic tank of the sort that are used as 
auxiliary fuel tanks in pick-up trucks. Still pondering the placement and 
installation details.....

There are two type 44 tq's sitting around locally (Ohio) needing this repair.

Maybe someone knows of other alternatives. Listening mode on.
