    What happened to your original tank ? Did you switch from a carby setup to EFI ? Why dont you search for EG's original efi fuel tank ? A while back when i swapped my car with a EFI setup someone suggested me Cultus's EFI fuel tank to be the best fit alternate.

    thankyou for your response yes sir i switched from d12 carby to d15 vtec and the current tank is altered, like the fuel pump is in tank now so the inner wall kind of thingy had to be removed and i have to have a full tank all the time or the engine passes out at slopes or when the tank gets half empty.

    There's a guy in magazine line / plaza who repairs fuel tanks like these. He's next to the shop that sells jacks and wheel spanners. It'll probably cost you around Rs.2000 to get a proper collar installed for an EFI fuel pump. If you decide to get it done elsewhere, never ever apply silicone to pack in the fuel pump.

    i also have the tank altered to fit in the fuel pump.

    Only issue I face is that when the petrol needle is on E, there is slight missing when speed driving on turns. Otherwise zero issues.

    What sort of issue are you facing?

    That's a common problem. I've heard from a mechanic that I can get a chamber installed inside the tank surrounding the fuel pump with drilled holes which will retain petrol during speed turns, but I haven't tried it myself. My issue was that whoever originally installed the EFI fuel pump did it very poorly. It looked like the hole was cut using hammers and pliers, it was a real shitty job. I ended up with a leaking tank no matter how many items mechanics tried to fix it. I finally got it permanently fixed by the guy in plaza recently - he cut out the section and welded in a new one, which fixed the issue for me. It's still a jugaad, but if the fuel tank isn't available, that's better than the alternative.

    I happen to have his number: 0333-2317293 (Nadeem)

    Talk to him about the petrol retention issue, see what he says.

    P.S.: If you get it done and are satisfied with it, do let me know, I'll get it done too.
