Just wondering if a VN wagon fuel tank would fit under a VK wagon? Are the V6 and 5.0L tanks the same, wats the difference? I'm after a solution to get a tank under my wagz with a return line for the EFI 5.0L.

I cant say for a wagon but I am running a tank from a VQ Statesman in my VK. There are very few/slight changes between models mainly cosmetic stuff so I would say it would fit but you will have issues with filler neck. I suggest you grab one out of a VL wagon it would be a more of a bolt in solution.

When I fitted my tank one tank strap fitted fine the other needed extension to make it fit due to different locating point.

cheers

What about pumps, do I just use the VQ pumps (I got a VQ 5.0L donor car) with the VL wagon tank? Is there a pump inside the tank and one outside?

That depends on the tank you use, My VQ tank uses 2 pumps.
Low pressure internal pump then a high pressure external one.

I think the VL uses 1 external only.

Im pretty sure the VQ tank i have uses 2 pumps as its a long range tank and the first pump is used to pump the fuel out of the bottom of the tank.

VL tanks have a low pressure inside and hi pressure out side, im fairly positive on this as i had a VL before this.
