Default Re: MB that'll run on beer

Thanks Starch!! On my gold lowrider I would get stares from everyone... Now I just get looks from people who know what theyre looking at =]

Tim, when I was doing research for the keg tank, I saw the same picture, very inspiring. Also saw a picture of a urinal made from a keg... puttin the beer right back where it came from. Amazing the uses for an empty keg shell when you get a little creative!

The filler neck and cap came right off the peanut tank that came with the engine kit. Theyre vented and everything. It just took a little massaging to get neck flange to fit the contours of the keg, then its just a matter of some delicate mig welding.

In case youre curious, for the drain fittings I just used standard pipe fittings... a steel bung so that I could weld it to the tank and a brass barbed fitting threaded into the bung for the fuel line to slide onto.
Slow and low, that is the tempo
