    You should be okay. As long as it's off another 1.8 hatch/saloon then you should be fine. On that engine there don't appear to be any different part numbers based on different chassis numbers. It's also the same tank that's on a 2.2. and 3.2

    Can't believe about your fuel being pumped out!!! Was this at the recovery yard then?

    I'm shocked that anyone would drill a fuel tank!

    You'd reckon it'd be much easier and safer to lever the plastic fuel cap open...
