European Automotive Plastic Fuel Systems


Why Plastics?

Innovative Plastic Fuel Tanks & Systems are here to stay. Producing
a plastic fuel tank and plastic fuel system is a complex process that
requires innovative engineering solutions, skilled workers and the
advanced knowhow. More than 95% of fuel tanks produced in Europe are
currently made of plastics!

Plastics are generally perceived as cheap materials only used for mass production of low quality articles. However, people tend to forget that this material can make high-technology applications of quality accessible to the public.

Plastic tank systems also serve the dual purpose of decreasing the vehicle’s overall weight, as an average plastic tank weighs two-thirds less than an average steel tank.

Preventing waste from vehicles and promoting their re-use, recycling and other forms of recovery of vehicles and components has been the main objective of the Directive on End-of-Life Vehicles (ELV).
