Re: Fuel Tank
Well that's one way of getting your car through MOT
Not being certain of the exact bar you are referring to ask yourself this question. Why would the manufacturer fit such a thing if it wasn't necessary. Manufacturers will do anything to reduce manufacturiug costs even by as much as one pence.
Personally if I was in this situation I would have grave doubts as to the safety standards of such a test.
If you could post up a pic of the bar or its location members may be in a better position to identify the part.
