I am looking at buying a 77 F233. I suspect it has a fiberglass fuel tank,
but have not been able to verify that with the PO. Does anyone have
any info on the fuel tank in this time frame and whether or not it reacts
with ethanol? Most of what I have been reading is from Bertram owners
but have found nothing on Formulas. Thank you in advance for any
insight.

Every F-233 I've seen has been built with aluminum tanks. Age is a problem but not Ethanol.

my 80 233 built in 79 has aluminium no problems with ethanol, now our bertram was a different story. Ethanol totaled out the fuel system ,from tank to carbs to heads.

1976 Formula F-20, part of the restoration had the floor and flotation foam out from the rear 1/2 of the boat.  My tank is certainly aluminum, and I am sure it was the factory original.  I would be concerned about all of the other fittings etc., especially on these older boats - just my $0.02.  Good luck!

I have just begun a 1969 project Thunderbird Formula.  It has 2 aluminum gas tanks.  Should I be concerned about using gasoline with ethanol?  If so, what would I need to do to keep from having problems with that?
