  • Where is the gas tank?

    I haven't heard where they put the gas tank, and if it’s a single tank, or a couple connected by a crossover tube like now.

    Good Question. Is it up front?

        I recall seeing a fuel filler door on the drivers side of the car, in pretty much the same location as on the C7

          It was described as a saddle-bag like dual tank in a Car And Driver article:

            It is a two tank system that is similar in design to the C7 two tank system.

                I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking this. - Oh no next to the exhaust manifolds and over the exhaust system. I'm sure they did their homework on that endlessly. I have faith as they sure did an awesome job on this gen Vette!
                It would be extremely comforting to talk with one of the engineers about this and see their response.

                  Since were on the subject. http://rmautobuzz.com/10-cars-likely-catch-fire/
                  Top Cars 10 Cars Most Likely To Catch Fire



                  When you think about high end performance cars such as Porsche’s, or Ferrari’s, you never would actually consider one of them catching fire at some point. Especially after footing their expensive price tags, but this is becoming more and more popular with faster cars. Once the world added texting and cell phones in general to their driving habits, the safety concerns of millions of other drivers on the road skyrocketed; and rightfully so. Now to add insult to injury, imagine your car setting on fire and the immense safety worries that would present. Better to do your research before buying a new car to ensure that you’re getting a safe, and reliable vehicle without any past mechanical defects.

                  Here are the 10 cars that are most likely to catch fire: 1. Fisker Karma 2. Jaguar F-Type 3. Porsche 991 GT3 4. Ford Explorer 5. Lamborghini Gallardo 6. Ferrari FF 7. Ferrari 458 Italia 8. Mini Cooper 9. Chevy Volt 10. Last But Not Least - TESLA

                  Click on the link under the Fiskar to see them all.




                  1. Fisker Karma




                  It’s rather ironic that a vehicle named Karma could have so many cases of catching fire. It’s an electrical vehicle that crosses into the luxury sedan category. It was a great idea on paper, but in reality there have been seventeen Karma-related car fires. None of them were directly attributed to the battery bank. One fire was known to have been caused by a cooling fan that failed, leading to an overheated engine. In the oddest of cases, sixteen Karmas caught fire during Hurricane Sandy when saltwater damaged the electrical systems.

                    Its a fuel pre-heater for the future quad turbodiesel C8.

                    Yes, a fuel tank leak or rupture is never desirable near a source of heat.

                      Ford will keep GT supercar from catching fire with a software update

                      Seeing one of these incredibly limited cars go up in smoke would be a travesty.

                      If you're driving in your fancy Ford GT supercar on Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca you definitely don't want to see is fire erupting from the engine behind you. Turns out, neither does Ford, especially after one burst into flames earlier this year in Germany. The American car manufacturer has issued a recall for its beautiful flying-buttressed supercar. and will fix the erupting-into-flames issue via a software update.

                      Approximately 200 of the 2017-18 Ford GTs are affected in this recall. The issue arises from hydraulic fluid which may leak from the valve block assembly due to high pressure onto the exhaust.

                      So far, only one owner has been affected by the issue. The driver, who goes by muc.collector on Instagram, was driving casually through Munich, Germany when his car caught on fire. Luckily neither the 52-year-old driver, nor his son, were injured. The car itself only had 43 miles on the odometer, meaning it was likely mechanical issue, and wasn't caused by a crash or reckless driving. Ford was kind enough to replace the driver's GT free of charge, though.
                      But considering that each Gorilla-Glass-windshielded GT retails for $450,000, it's probably best that Ford deals with the problem sooner rather than later.

                        It doesn't seem all that close to exhaust to me. And certainly not "over" the exhaust. I'd be more worried about a major side impact just in front of the rear wheel.

                          It appears it is secluded with it's own firewall or whatever it may be called. It would be interesting to see one of the cutaway pics in that area. Possibly someone will post it if they have seen it.

                            The internals look so good here it would be extremely cool to see one driving around with clear body panels.
