Got my fuel tank today.
 I think it will work out very well.
 It has fuel take outs on top as well as a tube to vent the tank.
I'm going to adapt My Snowmobile filler cap and fuel gauge,
just a float and indicator, to fit in the top where the Car fuel pump would be.
I wish the front portion was an inch thinner.
 There are no baffles in that part of the tank. 
 Think I could slowly crush it down an inch or two?
I was thinking a 3/4" piece of plywood and lower the truck on to it
To make a slight "Taper" to the front 4" of the tank...
Remember: Four boxes keep us free ,the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, AND the cartridge box

I would be leery of causing a leak, most tanks are made out of stampings and have folded seam, where two halves meet. I would be easy to fold it and cause leak.
