These Moeller Fuel Tanks are intended for permanent installation below decks. Constructed from rotationally molded, cross-linked polyethylene plastic, allows for complex shape designs beyond conventional and metal fuel tanks, and the seamless, one-piece design includes convenient hold down grooves molded directly into the tank's shell to secure the tank, even in rough conditions. The non-permeable construction will not leach fumes into boat interior.
Tanks come complete with molded fill spouts, withdraw and vent fittings molded directly into the shell. Withdraw fitting has a 360 degree rotational capability for a convenient hook-up. Moeller uses the largest interior and exterior diameter fittings allowed in the industry to maximize the level of flow input during refueling.

MOE-032524 24 gal. tank. I'd like to mount two of them in a renovated boat, but the best place for them requires that they be mounted 5-degrees off plumb. The result would be that the interior edge of the 5.5" bottom surface would be 1/2" higher than the outer edge. I can't see that that would cause any notable issue with the pickup tube, but thought I'd run it by others, perhaps with more experience. Thoughts anyone?Thanks.
Can't see it as a big problem -- sailboat fuel tanks run off plumb most of the time. If you can orient the tanks so the pick-up tube is on the low side, it will actually be to your advantage since, when running low on fuel it will collect at the tube side.
I installed 2 35 gal moeller tanks under the floor of the stern of my 36, sportsfisher last winter. I did not use the factory pickup tube, but fabricated an adapter for the level sensor hole that allowed the use of a length of push-lok hose with a bronze coupling and hose barb in the end of it that lays in the lowest corner of the tank. I did this because mine were much more out of plumb than 5 degrees. Your 5 degree tilt should be insignificant as far as filling and withdrawing fuel.
My below deck area is 47" long 25" wide and 9" deepThe fill hose is on right/ starboard side of boatHow many gallon tank can I get?
Knowing your dimensions, all you need to do is look through the list of Moeller tanks which will fit. The capacity of the tank you select will be listed. Pay attention to inlet location on the tank; fuel-resistant fill hoses are stiff and do not take bends easily.
Greetings, You can probably find a 15 to 18 gallon fuel tank to fit that area. Take a look at the Moeller Fuel Tank web site to see what might work for you - there are diagram for each tank on it. I was able to use an 18 gallon Model FT1895 fuel tank on my boat (36.50"L x 18.25"W x 7.25"H). The fill neck and vent are on the same side and the tank can be turn 180 degrees to accommodate Port and Starboard fill access. Hope this Helps.
First go to the Moeller website and select below deck tanks. They have all dimensions listed. I see one with 24 gals capacity that looks pretty close - 43x18x9.5". These are great tanks and I have four. Jamestown offers great service too. Make sure you leave room for the four connections. Good luck.
good day, I have a50gal rectangular tank I would like to reposition the filler inlet.. ad a drian and a fuel pu near the bottom.. Is there a system ( cements) to do so??
This would be a question for the manufacturer. We used ours as received.
I have not tried adding any additional fittings to my tank (13 Gallon) but moeller does make Fuel pickups for all of their tanks.
Hi there,You are asking the wrong person . The only mods. I did to my tank was shorten the fill neck.You might want to contact Moller and ask them.Sorry I could not be more helpful. Sincerly John Liss
does thin tank come with either 90 degree fill or center fill?
The tank I bought has the fill near one end ,on top ,straight up
These tanks come with the fill pictured on the web page.
Can you replace this tank w top tank?
I have no idea what a "top tank" is, but the Moeller tanks have standard fittings which should be compatible with other tank types.
Yes. I assume you mean an above deck tank , which are red
could I get all the dim. and locations of the filler and all other ports?
Actually you can go to Moeller site, and get all the dims of their units, plus pictures show all the location of the fill, sender, vent, and fuel line to motor. One thing you might ask later, the sending unit comes with the part inside the tank, which I did not realize and was ready to buy one that would fit. I think Jamestown site connects you to Moeller site to help in your questions. Remember one thing, (very very important) , the dims are that of the tank alone, so the fill connector being the biggest/tallest ,you need to add 4" to determine a clearance for both install and connections. Personally I believe the tank body should be 5-6" minimum shorter then the ceiling the tank is going to be installed. Each tank is a little different related to securement too. You might check that out before you buy, meaning the ss clamps do not fit some tanks, and straps will be needed, so if tank sits on wood no problem but on anything else you might need to drill or fill something. Just consider that point also. Good luck, my install went great and Jamestown price was the best on the internet. Even with higher shipping cost the price was right. Try to order all your stuff at one time to cut down on shipping cost. Regards, Pete
Do Moeller plastic tanks have baffles?
Ours do not. Other tanks might but I think it would say in the details.
I bought the 12 gallon tank. No baffling
I bought the 12 gallon tank. No baffling
I don't believe so. However, you can contact Moeller to confirm. They were helpful in my endeavor.
Do Moeller plastic permanent tanks have baffles?If not ,how do they work that way?
No baffles that I know of, just a standard fuel tank. Have not had any issues with mine.
The bigger the tank, the more need for baffles to mitigate the kinetic energy from "sloshing" (I forget the technical term). The diagram of each tank clearly indicates the baffling elements, if included.
If your fuel tank is like mine, the fuel pick-up is at the back of the tank or at the transom. When your boat is in the water, the bow is slightly higher. there for, there is no need for a baffle to hold gas at the pick-up because most of the gas automaticly stays there
do you make bigger tanks?
The various sizes of tanks (and dimensions) available are listed on the Jamestown site if you are interested enough to look. They are also available on the Moeller site.
yes they make larger tanks available through Jamestown Distributors as well as custom sizes.
PROCESS SERVICE COMPANY
The install went off without a hitch. love the new tank.
New Orleans, LA
Overall great experience with your company, I really appreciate the fact that you checked to make sure that I was the purchaser, since my address was different from the shipping address. That makes me feel secure dealing with your company. Will definitely purchase other items from you.
New Orleans, LA
Nice gas chamber, really like it
Just make sure you measure as you are going to install. This tank will not flex so it is important to take good measurements. Second , the fill spout, which is the highest piece adds about 4" to high, so consider such, and also you will need enough space to add the fill hose.
Installed under a bench seat in my 20 year old boat to replace rotted original alum tank. Did not want to cut the deck to replace orig tank so retrofit this tank instead. Pretty straight forward install-replumbed nicely-tank rugged & will probably last longer than the boat.
Punta Gorda, FL
Better then expected
I bought this 13 gallon unit, and the only thing I wish it had was indentions to accept stainless steel tie down clips instead of only using nylon straps. Just my personal preference. They make different sizes for any application. Very nicely made product, which I am sure will outlast the boat. Not really for its going to be installed into a 1956 Crestliner Voyager Hardtop.
Chesapeake Bay,. Maryland
Watch the measurements carefully
A word of caution regarding the dimensions, they do not include the fill fittings. I bought the 13 gallon MOE-032513 which was listed at 32.50 x 10.19 x 10.19. The physical tank itself is exactly those dimensions but the fill neck extends straight up another 3.5 inches so you'll need a minimum of 14 inches height to get the tank under the deck. You'll need more if you need to radius the fill hose to go a direction besides up.
Love Tank - Despise Draw Tube (Easy Fix)
Draw tubes in Moeller fuel tanks do not go all the way to bottom of the fuel tanks. Was told be Moeller that it is the industry standard to keep draw tubes 1" from the bottom of the tank so sediment is not pulled into engine. Consequently, this does not allow for full use of fuel tanks capacity. Easy fix - I purchased a MOE-033100-12 POP LOCK 12" Fuel Pick-up Assembly ($18), heated up the plastic draw tube, and then bent it into a gentle 90 degree elbow. Reformed draw tube slipped easily into fuel tank and now draws to within 1/16" of the bottom. One side note: the new draw tube does not have a strainer on it. So I installed an in-line fuel filter near the fuel tank as a preventative measure and to protect the engine fuel pump filter (easier to change in-line filter).
The Moeller line of fuel tanks are excellent replacements for old galvanized or fiberglass tanks. Everybody should know by now the problems that E-10 gas can cause. Replacing an old tank would be good preventative medicine.
