Easy to read here.....

Replacement senator ones are expensive and metal. He is asking if Omega plastic fuel tanks fit a senator.

Would imagine they are different as in the straps and mounting points? Perhaps need custom version of them?

Will ask at ABS too as it's more likely someone there done it.

Might it also differ if it's a Senator A or a B you're talking about?IIRC the Senator A had a fuel pump mounted ahead of the tank where the Senator B had an in tank pump?

I'd be amazed if the two tanks are anything like each other.

Pretty much the same chassis, so I wouldn't like to say one way or the other. I cant remember what my Senator tank was like tbh.
Never needed to get under it very often.  :)

I would be very very surprised if it did fit, they are blow moulded plastic and any slight change to chassis etc would alter the shape.

The sender and fuel take off is very different, from memory, on the senator, it is mounted on the side, the Omega has it on top (might be possible to alter the pipe work and prey the level sensor has the same resistance profile as the senator one).

The filler connection is also different.
