A fuel surge tank (FST) is designed to prevent fuel starvation to the engine on vehicles with inadequate fuel tank baffling. The FST fuel pump(s) directly feed the fuel rail(s). The volume of fuel inside the surge tank acts as a buffer to always keep the FST pump supplied with fuel.
This volume is maintained by the main fuel tank's pump as well as the fuel returning from the fuel pressure regulator. The surge tank also provides a quick and easy way to upgrade any standard fuel system without the need to modify the stock fuel tank or pump.
This is an excellent fueling solution for vehicles installing large fuel demand power upgrades such as forced induction. All Fuel Surge Tanks Include. All pumps mount internally using gasoline, ethanol, and methanol resistant wiring.For dual-pump configurations, each pump is wired independently. All hoses are submersible and E85 safe. The pump outlet fitting(s) are available in -6AN male size only (shown in green). How to Select Your Fuel Surge Tank Configuration.
Determine if your application will require one or two pumps. This is based on determining how much fuel flow the engine will need. NOTE: When pump(s) are included, the FST comes fully assembled and is ready to be installed in the vehicle.

However, the dual pump FSTs cannot be mounted completely horizontal because the pickups are on opposing sides of one another internally. Choose a bracket below that best fits the application. Floor and Wall Moun t - This bracket is laser cut from aluminum and powder coated black and can be mounted on the side or bottom of the surge tank. Frame Mount - Because this bracket has a 90deg formed bend and is cantilevered, it is constructed from steel for superior strength.It is not only nickel plated to resist corrosion, it also allows for components to be grounded to the spare hole in the bracket. This assumes the bracket is mounted to an electrically conductive material such as a steel frame.
Angled Mount - This mounting bracket is used for vehicles that may have a limited mounting height. It can be mounted on a floor and against a wall. This bracket is made from laser cut aluminum and powder coated black.
