Never again be stuck on the side of the road with a cracked plastic coolant tank!

Our new, all aluminum coolant expansion tank is the perfect replacement for troublesome original plastic tanks in your Vanagon. The last tank you'll ever purchase, our units are made from 100% aluminum and are hand TIG welded for strength and durability. Offered in three different configurations, this tank will fit your stock coolant bracket for a 1.9L or 2.1L. We also manufacture a custom bracket to make mounting in your Subaru conversion a snap. This tank comes complete with the correct nipple configuration for your vehicle, a new coolant level sensor installed and a new Stant Lev-R vented 16# pressure release cap.

Reviewer: Jaime Quevedo from Monterey, CA United States  
Recently bought another great designed and produced product from RMW.
My conversion now will look more professional and make my life easier bleeding the cooling system.

Just what I needed March 21, 2017
Reviewer: Aaron Minnerath from Grand Junction, CO United States  
After yet another leaking vw coolant tank, I found a way better tank.  Looks great, and is holding up way better than my last one for sure.

"The Tank" January 23, 2017
Reviewer: Ben Olson from Edgewater, CO United States  
While my plastic reservoir was not cracked, I wanted to preemptively make the upgrade. The Tank arrived nicely packaged and was a quick install - perfect fit. The welds are a thing of beauty and it makes for an overall cleaner look in the engine bay, not to mention the peace of mind it provides.

Well Built Tank September 18, 2016
Reviewer: Gene Goff from Ridgway, CO United States  
After hearing and reading stories of continual failures of the plastic tank, I decided, after the most recent failure of my plastic tank, to replace it with RMW's aluminum tank. Installation was easy with the provided bracket and we had no coolant problems on a weeklong camping trip around southern Colorado.

Paragraph 3 of the instructions are incorrect. They say to attach the spade connector (red) to the signal wire which is the green/blue striped wire and to crimp the eyelet (blue) to the brown ground wire. This should be reversed--the blade spade (blue) connector goes with the blue/green signal wire and the red eyelet connector goes to the brown ground wire.

The installed unit is a beauty to look at and while it costs a lot more than a plastic tank, I know my leaky tank days are behind me.
