Gas tank

The ML's gas tank is made from a very strong polyurethan meeting even demanding military specs (similar gas tank used in the famous Gelaendewagen) - however, the tank sits disturbingly low. Due to the limited ground clearance I brushed over a lot of sharp objects and my gas tanks displays several scars on the leading edge.

Recently (5/2002) one of my clients hit a rock on a dirt road in Baja and cut his tank open.


 The gas tank is one of the lowest points of the undercarriage of the ML 

The leading edge shows strong signs of abuse
