hi all
I have a 1970 elan coupe and the original fuel tank goes between the rear shock tower. I did not take the car apart and i due not know how the brackets or the bracing go. If anybody can explain or post some photos i would like that. I know its a rare option and the parts book does not show it
thanks evan

I have never seen a tank in that position but believe it was for Canadian requirments, it has been discussed previously.
Here are a couple of threads that may help.
