Default Getting Gassy
Re:: Cylinder style tanks   

I was wondering what the best size cylinder gas tank is or at least the most common when going with cylinder style. I am going to be placing under the hood and would like to take less visits to fill up rather than more. What is the size most go with? I tried to take some measurements but it is hard to tell without the tank to mock it up.

Also, I noticed Cip1 has aluminum, which a member here said could be an issue due to the booze in gas increasing. I was wondering thoughts on the poly tanks and the new stainless steel tanks?

Additionally, besides brackets, what other pieces are not necessarily included that I will need? petcock? Gas cap? sending unit? anything else?

Whip me if you have heard these before.

First choice would be a stainless tank with
the pick up on top. Race tanks are usually on bottom.

Provisions for a real sending gauge would also be good.
