LeMons allows a standard fuel tank, but we just weren't comfortable racing with it. Plus, we hope to take the little Honda to some oval track events when we're done, so we installed an ATL fuel cell. This 12-gallon cell has a Kevlar liner inside the metal shell for great protection. But look closely and you'll notice some differences between this cell and your standard model for carbureted race cars. ATL makes this model easy to work with for fuel-injected engines thanks to a return feed inlet. Also, notice how the fuel cell is mounted in the car. Hargett built a 'cage around the cell with 1-inch square tubing and then mounted that to the rollcage with tubing clamps that we got from Bradley Auto Parts at all four corners. This allows us to move the cell to the left or right to adjust weight distribution if necessary. This will be helpful later on oval tracks.
