    I think there was a recall or Service Bulletin for a small number of Virage gas tanks. If yours was one of the affected units (HIN), could you get a replacement tank?

    I might be able to find the Polaris Bulletin number, if you need it.

    They would only be able to give me a new version gas tank which would require me to also get a different oil tank with different fitting parts required. I should be able to find an original one somewhere...thanks!

    There are two different gas tank designs for the carb'ed Virage hull?
    That require different oil tanks and fittings?
    Didn't know that!

    1999-2002 Virage/Genesis/Freedom fuel tank part# 5433018 (carb'ed)

    2003-2004 Virage/Freedom/MSX 140 fuel tank part# 5434914 (Ficht and carb'ed)

    There are different versions for carbed or injected ski 1999-2002 (16 gal.). There's also a different tank (gas and oil) for virage and freedom 2003-2004 (17 gal.). You can only get the 2003-2004 version gas tank. It does not work with the oil tank from 1999-2002. So I need the original tank from a used ski.

    Thanks John but the fuel injected boats have a different tank and won't work. I can only use the gas tank from a carbureted watercraft.

    WTB - Gas tank for 2001 Genesis (carburetor)

    yeah I know and 8 year old thread..but guess what I need for somebody I've been servicing for 8 years...right 5433018

    the labor is gonna kill me but hey, if I can get a new tank for him, I'd be more then happy to do the job. Seems like a defect to me, leaking out of the middle of nowhere in the middle of nowhere.

    not being that lazy today, I found the link https://intl.polarisdealers.com/Virt...Inspection.pdf

    it's unfortunate, but I'm dealing with a year 2001 model..so doesn't look like it was covered.

    still looking for a tank however...
