Hartwig makes and repairs rubber fuel cell bladders, which your average Moth doesn’t need. But if you own slightly later DH aeroplanes this is the place to find the rubber tanks you are looking for. Both the 9 and the 12 gallon Chipmunk tanks can be delivered against either UK or Canadian part numbers, but check out the repair service first.
