    The vent tube is different on a Dansk 100L from an original.

    Date on the sender only applies if it’s a tall sender (it can be Dansk with a std short, the original sender)

    Dansk vent tube is longer and smaller in diameter:

    Looks legit to me. Not for a SWB as it has the 10mm vent tube. Early tanks have the 8mm vent tube. So probably for a 1969 or later car.

    Also I do not see the stamping on the base of the tank for the circular accumulator. That would have been on the later tanks. My guess is an early LWB tank.

    Best regards,

    So, it seems to me that the factory 100L tanks were actually modified 62L tanks.
