 The fuel management module

 

 

Plastic tanks feature major advantages over their metal counterparts. They are lighter, make optimal use of available space, offer greater safety, better resistance to corrosion and are produced at a lower cost.

High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) tanks, completely equipped with an electronic gauge, pump, filter, filling tube and cap, are delivered by Solvay, ready to be assembled into the car body.

Furthermore among Solvay's plastics, Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) is the best barrier material: it withstands high temperatures and corrosive acids and offers excellent barrier properties against fuels, additives and alcohols. It is one of the materials which will be used for the new fuel lines in accordance with recent legislation, in particular the Clean Air Act in the United States.
