    It is Amazon.ca for shipping in Canada now. You can do .com with a US post box...or some (very few) .com vendors will still ship cross border.

    What do you plan to coat the fuel tank with inside to prevent rusting?

    Glad to see you liked the boat filler suggestion on BB.

    I've run a custom fabricated mild steel tank in my vessel for 10 years without any internal corrosion issues. It doesn't really seem to be much of an issue on a fair weather vehicle as long as the tank is sealed from the atmospheric air as it should be.

    Good to know. I had lots of issues with steel motorcycle tanks over the years which was why I asked. Typically it was caused by not keeping them 100% full over the winter months while storing them.

    Condensation is a killer for sure. Makes me wonder how well those tanks are sealed from Atmospheric air. I know some of those vented caps suck - they can fail or partially fail and not seal perfectly.

    It LIVES!!!! Its outside at least

    Was always taught to store tanks full to prevent condensation, water in fuel, and corrosion.
    99% of gas tanks for the first 80 years of gas use were steel. I think I'm good.

    That's what I am using and mounted it just bellow the belt line on the drivers side behind rear tire. I'm using some 1.5" I.d. clear PVC.

    I welded a 3.5" round sump 3.5" deep (0.5L)to the bottom rear centre of the tank for fuel pick up. A single 3/4" hole between the main tank and the sump should help keep the sump full.
