Abstract : Four selected plastic fuel tanks and containers were subjected to preliminary evaluation tests related to boating safety and the results compared to those obtained on a metal fuel tank. The preliminary tests were: receiving inspection; proof/rupture; flame; static electricity; impact drop shock; permeability/fuel weight loss; sunshine; and vibration. The tests were designed to simulate the most severe conditions which the containers might encounter in typical recreational boating usage. Test results are tabulated. (P.P.-PL)
