Fuel and exhaust systems - carburettor

The fuel system on carburettor models may comprise a fuel tank, a fuel pump, a fuel pressure regulator and/or vapour separator, a downdraught carburettor and a thermostatically-controlled air cleaner.

On Saloon, Hatchback and Estate models, the fuel tank is mounted under the rear of the vehicle, on the right-hand side. On P100 models, the fuel tank is mounted behind the cab, between the chassis frame and the load area. The tank is ventilated, and has a simple filler pipe and a fuel gauge sender unit.
