Bladder for second fuel tank?

Searching for a new boat, 36 to 40, under 100k, and finding some interesting ones' in that range. Except most of these boats have less than 40 gallon fuel tanks. That worries me. Knowing that unfortunately we spend much more time on the iron genny than we'd like, 35 gallons seems to be a constant worry about fuel on occasion.

What is the "consensus" on bladder tanks for fuel? Springing a leak would be catastophic inside your boat. Are these things prone to popping?

Thanks,

Ken
