A principal research objective is to crash test improvements for the side mounted fuel tank on older models of General Motors C-10 pickups.  This research is funded as a consequence of a court settlement.  The model being tested is shown in the picture.  To see the kind of crash tests being conducted visit Crash Tests.

The mandate for ASRI is: "to focus on applying research from the GM-funded Research Project and any other applicable research to the design, development testing, and implementation of fuel system safety enhancements for C/K trucks."

ASRI is seeking manufacturers to fabricate a retrofit center-mounted tank that has passed severe crash testing.  The tank specifications may be viewed by clicking on the links shown below.  Interested manufacturers should call or e-mail ASRI.
