Fuel Tank Rust

I just was painting my frame when i droped my skid plates to revel rust and some putty slapped on the tank. The sealer so its tacky and starting seap threw it. Its a 96 f350 4x4 regular cab, and 8 foot bed. My question is what size tank is this? Its steel. i want to replace it with a plastic but theres, two different options from rock auto, either 18 or 19 gallons.

what one do i need?
