Re: Two questions about new fuel tank install

I replaced my two 55 gal steel tanks with aluminum tanks about 14 years ago. I agree with the comments about not painting and not installing the anti-siphon loop. I would add that it's a good practice to secure the tank with good ventilation outside and beneath the tanks. My tanks are sitting on starboard runners that are fastened with screw heads well reccessed and not other metals fixed to the tanks; however, there are tabs welded to the tanks that are then securely fastened.
