Steel fuel tanks have been widely used since the early days of the automobile's development. Thus, a strong history of performance, safety, low cost, and recyclability of steel fuel tanks has been established. Despite the growth of plastic fuel tanks in recent years, steel tanks are better suited to today's demanding environmental and engineering performance requirements.
