Hello everyone. Iíve been searching for some fuel system parts for my USA spec Ď05 PX150. It has sat for so long before buying it that the gas tank is corroded internally, and the fuel petcock is clogged with the vent tube corroded. All the parts I find seem to be for older or euro spec bikes. All the petcocks I find have the open/closed/reserve settings, where I need one that is just open/closed. None of the gas tanks Iíve found are for a PX150 with the fuel level sending unit. Does anyone have any tips on who/where might sell these parts?

Thanks,

After searching that part number, 228375, I found one on Scooters West, but it doesn't
't list the 2005 model year under the "this part fits" list. Should I assume it's the correct part?

Yes, it is the correct code. I took the codes of the US parts catalogue but the tank is basically the same for years now...

Shipping from SIP, I believe that it wonít be reasonable...

Thanks for the help. Was able to order a fuel tank on Scooterwest, and a fuel tap kit on scooterpartsco.

That's an incorrect tank that you provided in your link. That tank is for a Stella. The 2005 PX150 uses a different fuel sending unit, so the hole in the tank is different.

This is the one you need.

Whodat, Piaggio part code is correct. Their photo is probably wrong (they say that it may differ)...

I sent scooterwest an email to verify fitment of the Ď05 fuel sensing unit.

Call Scooterwest to make sure that's the right tank.

If I need something from SIP I just order here. http://www.scootermercato.com/Scooter-Parts/Vintage-Vespa-Parts/SIP-Part. Shipping is only $10.

Might as well throw these cheap quick connectors in your basket too.
http://www.scootermercato.com/Scooter-Parts/Fuel-Taps-and-Parts/FUEL-CONNECTOR. You'll thank me later when ever the tank is removed again.

Good luck!

Hereís a picture of a few tanks that will all fit physically fit in a 2005 PX150, but only one is correct. They all use the ďPXĒ style gas cap, but all the tanks are different.

*(I didnít include pics of the earlier P series flip up gas cap style tank)

From left to right-
1-2005 PX150 (same as all autolube PX's from the mid 80's).
2-Stella (LML) tank.
3-autolube P/PX (with no fuel gauge. I can't remember where I got this tank. I think it might be a SIP tank for the early P series. I might have bought it to upgrade from my flip up style P gas tank?).
4-non-autolube PX/T5 (with fuel gauge. This tank was out of my T5).

If you ever have any questions don't hesitate to call them.
I find it much easier to discuss on the phone rather than playing email tag.
They are very helpful and have put me back on the right track several times.

Are they all the same part number? The part number, 2283725, is the part number for the gas tank out of the Ď05 PX150 parts manual.

They would have to all be different parts numbers. But I have no idea what those numbers would be. Most everyone from the States who wants/needs specialized parts usually orders directly from SIP, or has a local shop order place the order for them.

Scooterwest replies to my email. The gas tank I ordered on their website is correct. The picture on their website is not one of an Ď05 style tank.
