Understanding Fuel Cells

Fuel cells are usually buried inside a box in the trunk or under the floor, so they rarely get the attention they deserve after they are installed.

Many road racing organizations require fuel cells certified to FIA FT3 (or higher) standards. The fuel cell consists of three parts: The outer can or enclosure, the bladder, and the foam baffling.
The enclosure (typically steel or aluminum) is the cell's first line of defense against damage. FIA fuel cell standards do not actually mention an outer enclosure at all, but SCCA (like many others) requires an enclosure made of 0.036" steel or 0.059" aluminum.
The bladder is the critical part that keeps the fuel inside. The bladder must be strong enough to resist tears and punctures, but it must be flexible enough to deform without cracking open and leaking. Those two competing requirements have led to the use of very high-tech materials like aramid fibers coated with special elastomers.
The foam baffling is there to help to prevent an explosion if the cell fails. A happy side benefit is that the baffling also helps to reduce fuel slosh.

One important thing to note about the FIA standard is Section 2, which states that fuel cells expire 5 years after the date of manufacture. This is because the current space-age materials are very strong when new, but they lose strength dramatically as they age. The old Goodyear (and Firestone, and Uni-Royal, and all the other brands Carroll Smith loved back in 1974) cells were basically rubber with a layer of fabric reinforcement. They lasted a long time, but they were nowhere near as strong as the elastomer-coated aramid materials that are required by the current FIA standards. The tradeoff is that these stronger materials are only stronger for a limited time.

You can keep your cell healthier with a little maintenance and inspection. Drain the cell completely before off-season storage. If you run an alcohol-bearing fuel, drain the cell immediately after every event. Gasoline exposure affects the bladder, but alcohol attacks the foam baffling as well. Even with pure gasoline, you should replace the foam baffling periodically. Every two years is usually sufficient with pure petroleum fuel. Still, prevention is better than losing half a dozen races while all those clogging schnibbles of old broken-down foam try to work their way through your fuel system.
