dimondjack Posted March 27, 2017 Report Share Posted March 27, 2017 I'm looking at the change in the fuel cell rules for 2017, namely where the 2016 rules stated: 22.214.171.124.1. For those teams having a STOCK fuel tank of 18-20 gallons, Chumpcar will allow the use of an SFI/FIA certified 22 gallon fuel cell. This rule notably absent for 2017, replaced with: 126.96.36.199. Fuel cells shall be limited to the stock, OEM fuel capacity for the make/model of car, plus-or minus (+/-) two (2) gallons. We have a 19 gallon OEM tank and had initially planned on getting a 22 gallon fuel cell as it is a very common size available (picked one out from JAZ). However, with this new rule I believe we can only go up to a 21 gallon fuel cell which I haven't found yet. Do I need to be looking for a custom fuel cell? Are cars which previously had an 18 and 19 gallon OEM tank banned from using the fuel cells they installed in their car for 2016? I can look in to getting displacement balls for the tank, but a gallon's worth of balls is significant and I've never had much good come from having a lot of them tied up in the tank.
