How Much Does It Typically Cost for a Fuel Tank Replacement?

A typical fuel tank replacement typically costs about $400 to $600, as of 2015. The exact price varies depending on many factors, such as the make and model of the vehicle, labor costs, the size of the tank and whether a plastic tank shield is also purchased.

A leak-free and functional fuel tank is crucial for the operation of a vehicle, and more importantly, for the safety of the driver and passengers. A leaking fuel tank can ignite if there are sparks near it, so it is important to repair or replace the fuel tank at the first sign of leakage.
