Mines had one - cost me 80 from a motor factors although I think SEL Imperial have them cheaper.

They rust and fail. Check its actually that and not pipes before you buy though.

That's where I got mine, cheap and arrived very quickly.

The welds around the seam of my old one had rusted and split apart too, so needed replacing.

I bought one from SEL Imperial a year or so ago - it cost 90...

Vauxhall wanted 900 to fit inc. parts and labour - they charge about 600 for the tank alone. Madness.
