tonyslongez Posted December 24, 2005 Share Posted December 24, 2005 Has anyone looked into using custom rubber made fuel cells? When I was at Oshkosh this year I talked to a gentleman that made custom rubber fuel cells. The only reason to consider bladders is because they seem to be more sterile than just a fiberglass tank. I seem to recall a few forced landings do to clogged fuel filters from the strake tanks despite the builders best efforts to keep the tank clean prior to closing. A fuel bladder seems like it would be the way to go. Certainly wouldn't have to worry about leaks when closing the strake. weight may be a problem though. Try not to beat me up I'm just thinking out loud here. any thoghts ? Tony Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
