New 2 gallon low profile meth tank
 
2 Attachment(s)
Pleased to announce the release of our new integrated universal water/meth tank. It's a once piece design with a mounting point for the pump and an integrated pump feed/baffle to ensure consistent performance. The low profile design makes it easy to fill and we have them in clear white for easy visual level checks or black for stealthier installations.

Tank dimensions: L 15.5" x W 8" x H 8.25"

Nice!
Edit- is the tank baffled or sumped?

Terry @ BMS 04-28-2017 09:08 PM

We've integrated a baffle in to the mold to allow operation at lower fluid levels.

How safe is running meth. Any risk if you run out and your at WOT?

ShocknAwe 04-29-2017 06:18 AM

This is cool! I'd love one designed to fit in the under trunk compartment of the 1er.

With a JB4 controlling water/meth it's quite safe. We hold boost low until meth is flowing and drop boost if meth flow starts to drop, in addition to numerous other safety systems.

It costs around $30,000 to design the tanks, get the mold made, various 3D printed test articles, longer term testing, etc. So we can only do those for projected higher volume applications. The E82 doesn't make the cut for that, sorry. This tank does fit nicely in the E82 trunk space though pushed up against the rear seat.

I'm guessing the new billet vent caps will fit on this tank?!

Terry @ BMS 04-29-2017 08:39 AM

Absolutely!

Here it is with the billet cap.

Lots of room around and above this tank. Perfect for many applications. 15.5" x 8" footprint.

That's a nice new tank, got the old 2.3gal version mounted in the same spot.

Custom tank made by some folks in Australia for 1Ms..

You shouldn't make methanol tanks out of aluminium.
Just because the tanks doesn't leak immediately, doesn't mean it isn't causing an issue. Stainless steel or vulcanised poly are the only safe options.

My experience is that Methanol will corrode aluminium unless you can maintain a clean surface after using, which in a tank I cannot see it being possible.

Whew. Yeah, ok I get that. Too bad! Thanks for the reply Terry.

You will need to anodize aluminum tanks, they are common in the industry when done correctly.

Looking good. Will these replace the 2.3g tanks? Or both remain?

I would hope not. I got the 2.3 and it tucks away nicely on the side of my trunk on my E90. If they were discontinuing those, I don't think I could part with mine knowing I would have to look for a used one should I ever sell my meth kit. IMO, 2.3 is the way to go with a E90 unless Terry comes up with something that can be put in underneath the trunk mat.

We haven't decided if we're going to keep the 2.3g 2piece tank around yet.
