Smallish diesel tank

Hey guys,

My big old aluminum tank started leaking. I took it out. I am looking for a smallish (10 - 15 gallon) tank. My google searches have only lead me to tanks with a fill, fuel line out, and a vent out. I need a fuel return. Any ideas of inexpensive poly tanks? I just want to get the Westerbeke running to put it on the market. I intend to re-power electric, but I reckon that's another thread.

I recently replaced my diesel tank with an 11 gallon (42 liter) poly tank from Vetus. They're a bit pricier than Moeller tanks, but in my case it was an almost perfect fit for the existing fuel tank bed. Also, all the fittings are metal, rather than part of the plastic molding.
