Dan, or Mike .  some time ago we discussed the location of stock fuel tanks , when it came to pickups, I know the book sez if it's in the cab it has to be removed. Ok, but you guys mentioned something about if not, the tank has to be physically in the stock location, however it does not have to be used, A fuel cell is the obvious way to go.
However for the life of me I cannot find such a thing mentioned in the book. This is Production class of course,  can you give me a paragraph or something to refer to ?? Thanks, Richard, AKA, Billy.

Some things are inferred to in the rules (ie not actually printed).  Production category states that vehicle must be aerodynamically "stone stock".  This would include retaining exterior fuel tanks BUT for safety purposes, the stock tank doesn't need to actually be used to hold fuel.  It just needs to be there to fill the hole it originally lived in so that it's removal doesn't give an aerodynamic advantage.  If a truck has an in-cab gas tank, it can be replaced with a bed mounted fuel cell legally since there was no exterior gas tank to begin with.

Trucks running in PP, MP or BMP classes MUST have the cab mounted gas tank removed. See pages 88 and or 95 of the 2017 rule book.
Coupes and Sedans running in Production classes must retain the stock gas tank but it does not need to be used.

Pretty simple.

Keep the tank, don't use it.

Production classes usually require things like the gas tank be in place, but does not have to be used.  We used ours for a water tank back in the 70's when we ran GT.
