The straps are the only main means of support to the plastic fuel tank and if they have both snapped I would not drive the car, it is now probably held in place by the pipe from the fuel filler,

I had the same problem on my Lag1 although only the drivers side strap was affected badly enough to warrant being changed.

To change the strap I was advised by a teckie at the main stealer. "You must support the tank with wood and a trolley jack while changing the strap or straps"

So I guess nothing else other than faith, is holding it up.

Hope this helps

Its is bolted on also, I have been reading the good old Haynes manual. The straps are support for the tank yes, but it is bolted on.
Saying that, I'll be getting new straps nextweek still. Dont wanna risk driving to far in it.

So your still going to drive it then

One good jolt over a speed bump or a pot hole and it could be chasing you down the road.
heed the advise that has been given Guvnor, DONT TAKE CHANCES

The tank is not bolted on anywhere other than the straps!.Your fuel tank is only being held up by the broken parts of the straps and the fuel filler pipe.....

It's your choice to drive it,but I personally wouldn't!

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
