Hey Jeep dudes...

My bro has a 96 Grand Cherokee Laredo. It currently has a plastic gas tank (no skid plate I believe) It appears that was optional on the truck.

He wanted to replace the gas tank because the truck has been sputtering and going all fucked on him for the last little while. To a point where he just parked it and said the hell with driving it.

He bought a new gas tank, however it is steel.

In his fuel filter there appeared to be lots of rust. The gas was orangy color as well.

Would any one know if the plastic gas tank in the jeeps are lined with steel?

If not, I couldn't see there being any rust in it?

Plastic tanks are rarely lined with steel......usually it's the other way around if there's a liner inside, however it does sound like something corroded, I"m thinkin inferior fuel pump maybe......or he had to have some water in that tank......who knows......
