Replaces tank on DeVilbiss Pressure Washer w/ Briggs and Stratton Quantum 6 engine made in Y2k
Bought this to replace the infamous leaking gas tank on my DeVilbiss Pressure Washer with a Quantum 6 Briggs engine that was made in 2000.
Easy replacement: 3 screws on the top of the recoil and one bolt on the side of the tank... the worst part is draining what gasoline might be left in the tank.
While you have it apart, you might want to consider replacing the fuel hose that runs from the tank to the carburetor... mine was cracked pretty good.
Interesting note on the fuel cap... has a prominent "No E85" molded on it.
4 stars instead of 5 because this is one of those things that should not need replaced.

Fit my 22" Murray push mower
From what I was able to glean from web searches, Briggs&Stratton had a manufacturing defect in a lot of the gas tanks they were making several years back. I was unable to find an exact replacement for the part no listed on my mower, but the reviews for this product suggested this tank worked on several different pieces of equipment. Indeed, it fits my mower just fine. So, if you have a B&S engine with a cracked gas tank and it looks like this, you're probably ok to get this one for a replacement.

This was a perfect replacement tank for my 2012 Troy Built pressure washer with a Briggs and Stratton 6.7 HP motor. Of course the ethanol had destroyed the old tank and turned it into dust. The lid on this tank has a no ethanol sign on it but that's going to be hard to do so for now im just using fuel treated with a stabilizer and will keep it drained when not in use. This tank seems to be a two piece, pressed or glued together replacement where as the original was all one piece but it was a perfect fit for my application and the lid felt as though it had a solid fit and a good seal to it. This will fit many different models of Briggs motors just heck out the pictures good before you order and make sure it matches what your trying to replace.

Replace That Leaky Tank With A New One
Had the typical leaky gas tank problem that is so common with these Briggs & Stratton mower engines. Was going to swap it out with the tank on my Craftsman pressure washer that doesn't get much use. After swapping the fuel tanks out I found that the pressure washer tank was leaking in the same location. Ordered a new tank through 2DayDeliver. Goes on in minutes. The new tank works like a charm (so far). Decided to use ethanol free gas after doing some research online. Hoping that this extends the life of this replacement tank. Will post update if it fails.

Plastic must taste good! But never fear
Huh. Rodents got in the shed and ate the gas cap and part of the top of the gas tank off. I know they say margarine is only one chemical away from being plastic. Wow! Plastic must taste good! But never fear. The freindly Briggs & Stratton store on 2DayDeliver came to our rescue. Gramps was able to get the chewed one off and this new one right back on in it's place. Thanks! Perfect!!!!

which worked fine for a year
I had read that the original gas tank was susceptible to cracks and leaks, and sure enough, mine did. I was able to remedy that with J-weld, which worked fine for a year, and then fell off. I was able to re-apply the J-weld and it worked fine again, but I decided to purchase this new tank anyway, so as not to have to deal with the crack any longer. It fit perfectly, which was my biggest concern, and is easy to switch out with the old tank. The only thing I wish it did come with were the 3 mounting screws, as I had lost two from the previous tank. I made due with screws I had, but it would have been nice to have the mounting screws come with the new tank.

replaced a leaky fuel tank on a power washer
Great price, replaced a BADLY leaking fuel tank on a power washer in about 5 minutes. The old tank would leak when
it was more than half full of gasoline. Tank arrived several days early, too, which was a bonus.
The tank is used on a 6 HP B&S engine. Engine number is 12H802-2349 D1.
The tank looks like it will fit several other smaller B&S engines on lawnmowers, too.
The old tank consisted of two halves that separated, probably due to vibration. The new tank
appears to be better constructed than the old tank.

Same as the original tank
Got this yesterday and it looks to be the exact same thing as I have on the mower. I haven't installed it yet but I'm sure it will fit. I fixed the old one with JB weld and it's still holding up, however, we decided to purchase this one in case the JB weld cracked from vibration and I need to fix it again. The mower is a good one and it is worth the cost of this tank to keep it going and a lot safer than having a fire due to a gas leak. I was really surprised to find this as my mower (Toro) is nearly 20 years old.

Worth every Penny of the $30.00 Price Tag...
I have owned my DR Trimmer/Mower since new for over 15 years. Noticed about 6 years ago a small leak when adding more than half a tank. Over time the leak worsened until it started pouring our and causing a fire hazard. Besides the leak this machine was a workhorse with it's 6.6 hp Briggs & Stratton INTEK engine. I ordered the replacement tank along with a new carburetor and primer bulb. I thoroughly cleaned the machine after removing the old tank and carburetor. I also replaced the 1/4" fuel line which was weathered and cracked, and may have contributed to the fuel leak problem. She runs like a charm now starting up right away. I hope the new tank holds up better than the old tank though they look indentical in construction.

Great replacement part.
I have been a fan of Briggs and Stratton for years. My mower of over 25 years has been a dream. Three pulls and it runs like a bear, this despite much abuse and lots of use. Recently, I noticed fuel leakage, and in making an examination discovered that the fuel line had deteriorated and the fuel tank was leaking in the seam where the clamshells come together. A new fuel line and this new tank did the trick. Along with a new spark plug, I feel I have a new machine. Life is good.
