Fuel Tank Products

Product Information

TI Fluid Systems develops and manufactures award-winning fuel tank systems for diesel, gasoline, flex-fuel and hybrid vehicle applications. TI Fluid Systems has revolutionized the production of plastic fuel tanks through its Ship-in-a-Bottle (SIB) and Tank Advanced Process Technology (TAPT) manufacturing methods.

TI Fluid Systems fuel tanks improve fuel system performance and are engineered for a wide range of packaging options, reduced evaporative emissions and low weight.

Fuel Tank Products include:

  • Plastic fuel tanks for gasoline, diesel, and flexfuel vehicles
  • Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) fuel tanks
  • Pressurized fuel tank systems for hybrid vehicles
  • Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) fuel tanks
  • Delivery and return components
  • Plastic fuel filler tubes

Advanced Manufacturing Methods:

The 2009 Automotive News PACE Award-winning SIB fuel tank changed the way plastic fuel tanks were made. By integrating the fuel system components into the tank via a preassembled carrier, TI Fluid Systems was able to develop the world’s first plastic PZEV fuel tank. Today, our new Tank Advanced Process Technology (TAPT) marks the next step in plastic tank production innovation for component integration in new tank solutions.

TI Fluid Systems’ 2014 Automotive News PACE Award-winning TAPT innovation is an adaptable blow molding manufacturing process that makes it possible to produce multiple types of fuel tanks for all types of powertrains – diesel, gasoline, flex-fuel, Partial Zero Emissions Vehicles (PZEV) and hybrid – from a single blow molding tool set design.

During TAPT, the parison is separated into two halves while a robot inserts the fuel system components into designated gripper areas of the tank assembly. The mold then closes to optimize the pinch joint flange. This process has fewer limitations as to size and complexity of shape.

These advanced methods enable TI Fluid Systems to set new standards in lightweight, flexible packaging technology with emissions integration.
