Fuel System & Battery

I've been doing some thinking lately in regards to the fuel system, and as luck would have it, I found a buyer for the standard Getrag Manual from the car.

As a result, this has allowed some "self-funding" for some desperately needed parts for the car. Today I placed an order for a 40L Aluminium Fuel Cell from At Racing World via eBay:
I'm also in the process of trying to work out what Fuel Pump to buy to support the 4 Bar regulator. I know a lot of the Bosch 044 pumps on eBay are of questionable origin, as are the Walbro ones, so this process could take some time.

Another thing that's caught my attention (because currently I have a Lead Acid Battery mounted in my cabin) is this thread:

Basically it outlines a battery made from Lithium Ion cells that is 400CA, 11Ah and only 3.5 pounds (1.6KG) which means it's small, convenient, and better suited to sitting in an un-used car as it will lose less power when sitting disconnected than a traditional battery would. It also means there is no requirement for ventilation, so I'm thinking something like this might be the go for the car too.
