Enthusiasts looking to modify their 1967 to 1972 model-year Chevy C10 truck just got a new option with the release of the Gen II Stealth Fuel Tank by Aeromotive, enabling installation of a 17-gallon tank behind the rear axle of their pickup.
Aeromotive innovation executive Jamie Meyer noted that “a clean, easy-to-install fuel system has been lacking” despite the size and high interest level of the Chevy C10 aftermarket, with the new fuel tank offering intended to fill that gap.
The Gen II Stealth Fuel Tank enables Chevy C10 owners to carry out a full tank swap. The installation kit contains all the parts needed to replace the original in-cab fuel tank with a larger, more convenient tank under the bed. The new tank fits in behind the rear axle and in between the frame rails, which usually don’t need to be cut or modified to accommodate it.
The Aeromotive Stealth Fuel Tank features a filler cap located in the Chevy C10 pickup’s bed, and comes complete with a fuel filler cap assembly. Other components of the kit include all the necessary mounting hardware, tank straps to hold the 17-gallon tank itself in place, and drill guides for the necessary attachment points.
While some modifications are needed to install the Stealth Fuel Tank in a Chevy C10, Aeromotive worked to keep these to a minimum. The owner needs to drill a hole pattern in the truck’s bed to fit the filler cap and four holes in the frame rails to attach the mounting hardware. Most 1967 to 1972 trucks need no other modifications.
Aeromotive fabricates the Gen II Stealth Fuel tank out of rugged painted steel. However, the company also notes a lighter variant for motorsports applications, made out of aluminum, is currently under development. Internally, the tank features foam and basket inserts to control the sloshing of gasoline or other fuels.
The fuel pumps available for the Stealth Fuel Tank can supply fuel to Chevy C10 at a flow rate of 200, 340, or 450 liters per hour (LPH). In terms of gallons per hour (GPH), these pumps supply 52.8, 89.8, or 118.9 gallons respectively. With the correct forced induction setup, the pumps can support a maximum of 800 horsepower with gasoline or 550 horsepower with E85.
The Chevy C10 fuel tank is the latest release in a range of Aeromotive aftermarket performance parts for GM vehicles. Previously, the company released a performance fuel pump for the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 trucks able to support up to 2,400 horsepower in naturally-aspirated pickups. The Gen II Stealth Fuel Tank and other parts are available for purchase via Aeromotive’s web shop.
