Generally considered a fit and forget part, you may well never have even seen the original VW Beetle fuel tank in your car, but that doesn’t mean it should be ignored. Years of use, especially if the car has been left standing for any length of time, can lead to a build up of debris in and VW Beetle fuel tank that can affect how your classic Beetle runs. For this reason, we sell a complete range of replacement Beetle fuel tanks, as well as all the necessary seals, pipes and other Beetle fuel tank accessories you may require to overhaul this vital part of your VW Beetle. We also stock spun aluminium tanks for beach buggies, trikes and other custom projects, plus a wide range of VW Beetle filler caps, fuel gauge sender units, fuel hoses, Beetle fuel pumps – both standard Beetle mechanical fuel pumps for dynamo and alternator applications and high pressure VW Beetle fuel injection pumps and rotary fuel pumps, together with numerous other classic Beetle fuel system components.
In addition to the fuel system itself, there is the carburettor. Again, like all parts on your classic VW Beetle, the VW Beetle carburettor will be at least 40 years old now and general wear and tear could well be the cause of running problems. So, whether your Beetle has its original style 30 PICT or 34 PICT carb or has at some point been upgraded, we here at VW Heritage offer everything you could require, from the finest performance brands such as Weber, CSP, EMPI and Scat. We hold stock of replacement Beetle single progressive carbs, right up to Beetle dual carb kits using twin choke Weber IDF / IDA and EMPI HPMX twins for optimum power, whatever the output of your engine.
On top of this, we also hold a variety of VW Beetle dual carb linkages, air filters and even Volkswagen Beetle carb set up tools to get your Volkswagen on the road and keep your Beetle in tune at all times.

By the outbreak of World War 2 in 1939, only a handful of consumer cars had been produced, and all customer orders had been cancelled as production was switched from civilian vehicles to that of military vehicles.
The main two vehicles produced during the war period were both Beetle based variants, the flat 4 air cooled engine and rugged suspension being ideal for the harsh desert environments of Africa.
The first was the Type 82 Kubelwagen, a utilitarian off-road vehicle of very basic construction. German military officials had stipulated that the fully laden Kubelwagen (including 4 battle dressed troops) shouldn’t weigh more than 950kg, this left the unladen vehicle with a maximum weight of 550kg. The experienced military coachbuilder Trutz was subcontracted by Porsche to assist with the body design.
