Carbon Works Berlin Creates a Carbon Fiber Gas Tank for Mk1 Golf

Ahh carbon fiber, you’re everywhere these days, aren’t you?  A full-blown tailoring industry has been molded around, well, molding, and the products it pumps out are limited only by imagination and budget.  Take the latest exercise from Carbon Works Berlin, a fuel tank done completely in carbon fiber.

Now, we think it’s a safe assumption that this tank does weigh a bit less than a standard metal one, but does it really matter?  The reality is that this is a beautiful piece, that can’t even be seen unless you’re under the vehicle or have parked on a mirror.  In that, it’s the kind of thing that separates first from second at places like Wörthersee, where touches like this make all the difference.
