Right - we're all saying 'plastic' - but does anyone actually know exactly what the material is?

Its some kind of nylon, but I dont know the exact type.

The preliminary settlement makes interesting reading.

So warranty for tanks is extended to 5 years from the date of original purchase.
But what about bikes 6 years old or more?
And what about bikes are 6 years old but have three year old tanks on them?

And also, of most interest to me, it only covers cosmetic tank issues.
What about tanks like mine that show no blistering, no flaking but are rippling alarmingly inside and on the bottom?
I'm going to roll both bikes out the garage at the weekend and take some pictures looking into the filler cap on both bikes.
