Does anyone happen to know if the gas tank on a mid 80's Brat is the same as the one on a mid 80's Hatch back? I just found two more parts cars, a green 84 hatch, and a blue 85 sedan. I think it is time for my friends and family to have an intervention! But on the brighter side, I should have enough parts to last the life of my wagon and Brat! :D Thanks, Kurt

neither one of those fits. the 80-84 4wd wagon will be a match though

Yeah - makes sense now that I think about it - since there's no room back there for a big tank. Thanks for the stats Ken....
All this time I was thinking the EA81's only had 2 types of tanks.... now I see there's 4! Amazing.

Also interesting to note the fuel pressure of the carbed pump - 1.35 - 2.06 psi. Not quite enough for a Weber according to most literature.

What draw back? I usually go out wheeling with a half tank. Less weight the better.
