No. but they are aware of the issue, of that I am certain. Yet they took £500 off me for a new tank and sold me a new nylon tank knowing that it was going to have issues with ethanol additives in fuel.

Surely that falls under the sale of goods act or something


Given differing legislative frameworks, I can only comment in broad generalities.

Triumph haven't necessarily incurred a financial loss by selling the end user a replacement fuel tank (thus no grounds for a lawsuit if no financial loss).

Triumph didn't purchase the supposed faulty fuel.

Triumph don't own the damaged fuel tank.

Only individuals (ie the consumer) is protected by Fair Trading/Sale Of Goods etc.

Triumph can't take action on behalf of the consumer.

If a consumer took legal action against Triumph for the faulty fuel tank, it would then be _possible_ for Triumph to join a fuel company in the proceedings.

Probably a topic for another thread as this legal discussion would swamp the intent of this thread to gather some anecdotal background to the phenomena of warping plastic fuel tanks.
