        Got my fuel tank today.
        It's new and for an old Cj. jeep.
        Made out of steel and only weighs 7 pounds, 15 gal.

        I think it will work out very well.
        It has fuel take outs on top as well as a tube to vent the tank.
        I'm going to adapt My Snowmobile filler cap and fuel gauge, just a float and indicator, to fit in the top where the Car fuel pump would be.
        I wish the front portion was an inch thinner.
        There are no baffles in that part of the tank.
        Think I could slowly crush it down an inch or two?
        I was thinking a 3/4" piece of plywood and lower the truck on to it
        To make a slight "Taper" to the front 4" of the tank...

          I think steel would tend to kink if crushed. those little corners would tend to leak, go carefully.

            A good weld shop could easily modify a new tank.. Then line it with Red Coat. A fiberglass tank could also be coated. Don't know about its resistance to alcohol fuels.
