Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2774949A1] A pipe (15') internal to the tank, connects between the head spaces. Preferred features: A single support fixes the pipe against the internal wall of the tank. The pipe is alternatively a channel formed in the thickness of the top wall (16') of the tank. It is formed by gas co-injection at the top of the mold, during injection molding. A separator is located at each end of the pipe introduced into the tank. This prevents liquid fuel from entering into the pipe, only allowing passage of gas. The tank is made from two injection-molded sections, adhered or welded together.
