Re: [DML] Re: Need advise



That is interesting.  Did anyone measure the temp on the standard, 
plastic bottle?  I'd guess that would be the coolest of all.  (Although, 
the metal ones "look" the coolest!)  I know the metal tanks look nice, 
but if I can't see spending that much on a cosmetic upgrade (admittedly, 
a nice one) that detracts from coolant performance to boot, I'm now 
wondering if I should replace my soon-to-fail plastic tank with another 
stock one.  Anybody have any input on this?  I was actually considering 
a stainless one.  Who makes the aluminum one - I thought they were all 
stainless from DMC, PJG & Special-T...

Regarding the fuel sender, I have the DMCH one and it is FAR better than 
the stock, but it still leaks a teeny bit when my tank is filled up to 
the max, even with the new, supplied seal.  Still, I'm pretty happy with 
it and the price was fair.  I couldn't spend the extra cost for the 
'Zilla, but I hear it's good too, and uses the DMCH sender unit anyhow.  
Is this correct?  I don't wanna spread misinformation...
