I'm looking at getting a race fuel tank made up for my new fuel system but wondered what would be best as they've given me the option:

Baffled ?

OR

Foam filled ?


The tank will feed a swirl pot before going to the fuel rail as well

Thanks

Why? Where do you intend fitting it? Need it meet RAC MSA or FIA regs? What sort of size and shape? A foam filled bag tank in an alloy casing is safest, but very expensive. Foam filled with a swirl pot fed from at least two outlets would work for any track day. Stock tank should be fine with a swirl pot, too, though...

I will be fitting it in the boot where the spare wheel well used to be

The rest of the car is being built to MSA standards. I was lookin at the ATL tanks but they are expensive

I have been speaking to a manufacturer who can build me a 30litre tank and have asked whether I would want it paffled or foam filled

I suppose with the foam I wouuld get no sloshing in the tank?

I will be using 2 x low pressure high flow pump in parallel to feed a swirl pot with a high pressure pump then feeding from the swirl pot to the fuel rail

I'd go for foam filled myself, but you can't beat the safety of a proper bag tank. At well over 2K for a custom one though, this may not be an option.
