    The online seller "Ford Parts Giant" lists a tank for the 1.9 engine only (F3CZ-9002-B), but looking at a few other parts gives some clues.

    The 1.8 and 1.9 engine cars show the same part numbers for the RH tank strap (FOCZ-9092-A), the tank heat shield (F6CZ9A032AA) and the fuel pump retaining ring (E6AZ-9C385-A). So the tanks must be pretty similar, perhaps you could adapt a 1.9 tank to fit the 1.8.

    I went with the one from vintage because the guy with the 95 lx showed pix of his and its exactly like mine. I will let everyone know if it works on my 91 gt.

    I'm thinking that the slightly smaller LX gas tank would work in a GT just fine. However I am also guessing that your GT fuel gauge is expecting the larger tank, and may be off a little. Just be looking out for that!

    If I had known that the GT tank is bigger than the LX, I probably would have gotten one from the junkyard back when you still could find them. Do you have pictures of the GT unit?
