I was wondering how well made the gas tanks are that are being sold now? I see a place called Tanks Inc. advertising in magazines, seem to have
pretty "low" price on a tank for my car.
Question, if I was to purchase one of these tanks, should it be sealed inside and painted outside before being mounted in the car?? I wonder if the
tanks are "galvanized" or not?

Thanks John

If the tanks you are looking at are inexpensive, they are probably made in China. I would ask whoever you are dealing with where their tanks are made.
I wouldn't put any sealer on the inside, the outside isn't galvanized, but has some type of coating that resists rust, again, ask them your questions. I think Tanks, Inc. is probably a good source, although I haven't purchased from them. I was happy with the new one I got, but don't remember right now who I ordered it from.

I got mine from Nightshade here on Steves. Tank was made in Canada not China.

Seemed to be equal or better quality to the one I took out. So far it seems fine.

The only issue I had was finding a gas cap that fit onto that tank. The stock ones do not work.
