réservoir d'essence does translate to Fuel Tank.

I am unable to decipher what #5 is, tried battery and Electrical.

condensateur is capacitor, and there is an Ecomodder thread on using capacitors (small/light weight) in lieu of traditional battery.

More from Freebeard's Album:

Giorgetto Giugiaro, founder of the Turin design house Italdesign and, as of this writing, 80 years old, could safely be called one of the most successful and prolific auto designers of all time. Giugiaro was impressed and intrigued enough with Le Corbusier’s Voiture Minimum that in 1987 he commissioned a full-scale studio model. After more than half a century of existence only on paper, Le Corbusier’s dream car had finally taken solid, three-dimensional form.
