Fuel tank st165

Postby Bori » Wed Sep 28, 2022 3:37 pm

Tried searching the topic but couldn't find answer and looked online but not clear info......

Does anybody know if a 162 fuel tank will fit a 165? I'm in need of a tank but don't find it online. Toyota site shows they don't sell it anymore. Thinking about going to a local junkyard and picking one up if it fits.

Thanks

They are completely different. The ST162 fuel tanks sits in a different location and has an entirely different shape.

The ST162 fuel tank sits approx infront of where the rear diff would be but a bit flatter with a different fuel neck design.

It's sort of unobtainium at this point. If you still have your tank, I would see about getting it repaired.

No it is unique to the ST165. It will never show up in a junkyard just being honest. Everyone in recent years either restored theirs or went to a fuel cell system.

Well that's that :| Guess I'll either have to luck out and find one or custom it. :doh: I bought the car from a junkyard and the tank was removed so I don't have one at all.

Thanks for the answers

It's been mentioned a few times on at.net but you either can find a radiator repair place or a welding shop. That's your best best for this gas tank. No way in hell are you finding a tank for a 165 unless you have a really strong horseshoe.

Found it on a forum on Facebook. Shipping is a bitch though. Needs a little tlc but it can be handled. Just glad I found one. I was really worried I never would.

Be very wary of offshore shipping, but if you found one that's legit - kudos! I have a spare ST185 tank that kinda fits st165 as well but it's rusted out. I plan on getting a mold of it at some point to have some made.

Oh it's right here in the states. Had video calls to make sure it's legit. You have a great idea with making a mold of your tank. I'm sure you can make money off that.

Finally here! Needs some TLC but manageable. For some reason I can't post pics of it. :doh:

Are you going to have any work done to it or just toss it in and move forward with testing ? Is the small fuel line adaptor on the car still ?

For sure have to work on this before it goes on. I'll have to pour in some rust remover and clean/paint it afterwards. Everything but the fuel pump "seems" to be there but i'll find out once i get to it.
