A 5/16-inch diameter fuel line extends to the engine fuel pump from a 21-gallon fuel tank specially designed to fit the configuration of the Turbine Car. The fuel tank, supported by two fore-and-aft straps, has a 1-3/4 inch diameter filler pipe with a 3/4-inch external vent line and a vented cap. The internal end of the vent line is located near the top of the tank and designed with a small vent hole so that normal filling of the tank will stop when the fuel reaches the end of the vent tube, thus allowing room for thermal expansion of the fuel.
