    Good Morning,

    I found gas tank of engine for the starting up. I was told that it was for Bf 109, but i don't think because i didn't see pictures whit this type of engine tank.

    Somebody saw or help me, please.

    If that is the part shown in the pictures above it's a coolant tank, not a fuel tank.
    The shape of these tanks changed on the Bf 109 as the engine installation and bearers changed and I don't know if your tank is from a Bf 109.

    Based on the shape and assuming the large cone shape item is a drain, it looks like it fits in the wing of something. I'm really not sure the 109 had a fuel tank in the wing.

    It's far too small to be a fuel tank......except maybe on a lawn mower :)

    Cheers

    Rather it's a kind of oil tank... than the fuel one.

    It's a coolant tank of a Junkers Jumo engine as used in the Ju 87 Stuka.
    Just look at a picture of the left side of the engine.
