If the car is a NON-Quattro then it wont fit.  The tanks are different from
the quattro to the non-quattro.  You can use a tank from ANY type 44 q, from
the 86 5kq to the V8q, they are all the same.

86 5ktq (tankless also)
89 200tqa

Well, it might have. After talking with the mechanic,
we agreed on a lower price for the tank and labor. So
I'll have them do the work. Still a big hit to the
wallet, but not as bad as the original estimate.

Now it has to be trouble free for another 4 months.
