Re: Fuel tank size for San Diego based Coastal

Those are all great comments.

To give followup: I ended up buying the 19 gallon tank from Moeller Marine-old style, no fancy double lining. I'm very happy with what I received. It comes with a sender, a diesel return line, and a big inspection port. I think it will be great for what I need, and I'm happy to have plastic rather than metal.

Having seen the clean inside of the prior 8 year old, almost certainly completely neglected old tank, I have a feeling Southern California boaters are treated pretty gently by the environmnent and maybe we can slide by on a few of these rules.
