Default My tank choice for the Hydramist

Here is the choice I made for my methanol/water tank for my Hydramist:

Where should I hook my pump up and how?
Should I use the petcock at the bottom and just run a hose to the pump?
Thanks for the help.

That is a nice tank. I like that a lot. You can use that hole from which the petcock is threaded in or even open it and slip the hose over the end. Depends on where you are mounting this tank... I kinda like the drain feature, since I play around w/ mixtures when I can get methanol or when the weather get too cold (heading to the mountains), I change the mixture to more alcohol. I usually run a 70-30 water/rubbing alcohol, but add more alcohol to the mix.
But anyway, I think the drain is a good idea, even to drain the dirt and residue that settles to the very bottom of the tank. Most people dont see it or notice it.
I would drill and tap the pipe tread of your choice ( or just use the fitting as the tap and seal it) about a 1/2-1" off the base of the tank and just teflon wrap it for safe measure, and keep the petcock.
I would plug the vent on top though, just in case it gets hot and your alcohol doesn't evaporate.
I hope this helps, more info/details on your side could help future advice.

The Hydramist comes with a tank adaptor, drill a 22mm hole, deburred and put the tank adaptor in. Good loaction will be abouit 1"-1.5" from the bottom of the tank. Outlet facing the rear of the vehicle, this will avoid water surge probelm during acceleration.



I am glad you have decided to go for a more professional approach as well as as your tank selection, Fuelcell is designed for use in racing condition and great for the fast road. Alcohol resistant foam is also available as an optional extra at Summit.

Alternatively, you can use petcock as you water outlet but it will have to rely on some ingenuity to marry up the two diameters - ensure it is absolutely air-tight.

Richard,
Thanks for the info.

I was thinking I would use the petcock as the water outlet. Phil @ Element said that I could use a 6mm hose attached to the petcock and have the supplied Hydramist hose forced inside of that hose and that should be air tight. I might wrap the connection with some sort of tape or maybe a zip tie that didn't pinch the connection. Let me know what you think.
Thanks,
Eric

I think by following Phil's instruction, you won't do much wrong. He described the connect of the two hose for me, it was very air tight.

Hopefully I will have the kit in my hands soon so I can start taking some install pics!

If you are using a rubber hose to splice the two hoses together, ensure the nylon hose tip is not too sharp, ,may produce some rubber debris. If you can run a hot air gun onto the tip of the nylon hose, it will round it up. I know there is a filter ahead. Particles smaller then 100 micro will get through and eventually causing unnecessary built up.
