Re: Fuel tank longevity

When I looked into the cost of a new aluminum tank for my 31 last year, the prices ranged from about $500 (from the guy who built the original tanks in CA) to about $1,200 in Annapolis.

As to emptying the tank, I found that a cheap pump designed to pump kerosene did the job just fine for about $20. Battery Operated Pump Kerosene Gas w Auotostop Buzzer | eBay
