Spare wheel fuel can

Post by Nocky » Wed Dec 04, 2019 7:41 pm

Hi all, can anyone confirm if this was an aftermarket accessory or maybe a 1 off ? I’ve never seen one before but seems like a good idea for those of us with dodgy fuel gauges / senders.

Yes I have a spare wheel fuel can with a slightly different form. I am aware that there were two VW stamped ones. 7L for 14" wheels and 8L for 15" wheels. Mine is 7L and is stamped VW on the front in raised letters.

Awesome cheers for the speedy reply. I’ve just purchased a mint looking one ;-) was hoping it was vw, but assumed aftermarket as I’d never seen one before.

Nice purchase! That was made for a VW.. the one I have had a brass threaded cap with a pull out n up spout. Carried it in my Fire Truck.
If you seek photos I believe there are some on thesamba.com. these come up for sale rarely. I bid for a 'rough' 15" wheel one last year on eBay but failed.. these fit beetles well and went to a US bidder!
