    68 Rivi FiTech addition seeking any info on in tank fuel solutions

    No after market tanks available. 69's had in tank pump for carb but provided no baffling or reservoir.
    Any info, experiences, solutions welcome.

    there's no like year FI conversion for the big body Chevrolets from 1968?

    the Riv probably used the same or very similar fuel tank.

    have you asked over at www.RivOwners.org?

    I don't believe FITech requires an intank pump. My TBI does not. Just an in line pump. 12,000 + miles on the rascal.

    I believe they offer several options, I expect this is the most convenient:

    External pump can have heat and noise issues. That's why the factory generally uses in tank units. The Rivi was supposed to be grand touring car and I drive primarily in the So West. AZ in cabin temps when left in a parking lot can be 150 degrees. Streets surfaces are hotter. Primary reason for going EFI is to get around vapor lock.

    Maybe a deuce and a quarter, but Rivi's were unique. A-body Buicks are more or less Chevelles with some drive train changes and there are custom tanks with all the stuff built in available for them. I have a picture for you of the tank but I don't see any way to load it. ROA are mostly resto guys. When they modify the ones I've seen spend Mega bucks and put a frame under it and change everything. I contacted BCA and Modified div but no luck.

    I know well those AZ temps. Not quite as bad here in TX. I have my pump mounted on the outside of the frame rail and there is a return line.
    No vapor lock is the main reason for me , too. Plus about as perfect as one can get on air/fuel ratio. Todays gas is made for FI. I love mine.
