    I am waiting for my allison to be transported to me.  Where is the gas tank?

    Tom Colello


    The gas tank is built in under the deck in the front compartment. Filler neck is the radiator cap. Be careful when filling as auto shut off doesn’t always work and you’ll spill gas all over your grill and front end if you’re not careful.

    Post some pics when you get the car. There is one other on this site besides me with Allison’s.

    Aw Tom, you had to provide a serious answer?

    I was gonna tell Gary that, hopefully, the gas tank is with and IN his car!


    I will second the caution over filling the tank. My Duchess’ filler pipe runs up through the grill to the “radiator cap” also. I fill the tank slowly, and by ear. You can hear when the tank gets full and the filler pipe is starting to fill up.

    I will post pics after first show this wkend.  I have had a bcw, and a fiber fab but like the allison much more.  Has all the options including the knock off wires.  All the tags including the one on back of car by engine, steering wheel, and side of car.  With the original 8 track player that works.
