does anyone know the difference in the gas tanks between a 2003, 2004 and a 2005 KIA RIO?

that just took me to a site to SEARCH for a fuel tank, I wanted to know what the DIFFERENCE is in them.
So, type in "fuel tank" with the year and make and model then click on search. Wala, you will have an answer to your question.

One more time, Please fill out your profile.

What the search tells you is that the 04 and 05 tanks interchange. Obviously the 03 is a different tank as it is not part of the listing. A little thought and searching, maybe 5 to 10 minutes on your part, would have shown you this.

than PEOPLE on here should NOT make fun of someone because they do not know how to LOOK for something, I wanted to know what the PHYSICAL difference is between them because my local KIA dealership said there was a difference and that ONLY a tank made between July 1 2004 and June 15 2005 will fit! So looking at a web site that tells you how to ORDER one did NOT tell me the PHYSICAL difference why only the 05 PRODUCTION year, ( July 04 to June 05 ) will fit! Maybe people that make FUN of people on here should be chastised on here when they do it!

Hey there justme, I was not making "fun" of you at all. You asked a question regarding Rio fuel tanks, I provided a link showing where you could order a tank for Rio's model years 2004 and 2005 and it is the same tank. The tank for a Rio 2003 is not listed at the link provided so it obviously is a different tank and hence would not fit.

If the listing shows the tank fitting 2004 & 2005 than we can pretty well bet they are the same tank.

Hope this clears things up for you.

You said "Maybe people that make FUN of people on here should be chastised on here when they do it!" No....that's just as bad as them attacking others...

We (mods) warn offenders, watch offenders, ban users for periods of time, and if the offense is bad enough ban them from this site totally...

When you come to ANY forum you will find people that will have no patience with "newbies" ...It's best to ignore them (I say if you don't like a poster use the "page down" key).

Don't get your expectations too high as Your "problems" may not be as important to others as you think they are... Try to phrase your problem in a way that others WANT to help you... rather than bringing about confrontation.
