Default Re: PVC Tank How To

(PVC pipe/Poly Vinyl Chloride material)
I'm no expert on the stuff, but the industry I work in uses PVC for several products that are exposed to many elements & chemicals, UV rays from the sun will cause some deterioration over a long period of time, but if it's painted that will be eliminated because the sunlight can't get to it, I would use PVC pipe as a fuel tank with confidence.

I would however use Schedule 40 at least just for the strength factor of the thicker pipe.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
