This brings ΧΑ—teresting question. I have an old manual that 
points out that there should be a small copper "strap" that wraps 
around the rubber gasket at one point to insure a good ground. This 
manual has a picture of this strap/gasket/sender/tank.

 I have never seen one of these straps, and I wonder when they were 
supplied. Once you think about it you realize that the 6 bolts that 
attach the sender form a perfectly goo ground. What was VW thinking?

Or was this just some kind of inside joke on the part of the people 
who wrote the manual?

Has anyone ever seen this copper ground strap? It was just a tiny "U" 
shaped strap with a hole in each end so it could slip around the 
gasket allowing one of the bolts to pass through each end, once on 
each side of the rubber gasket.
