Question under bed oem replacement tank?

Any one have a lead on non steel under bed tanks? I'd like to ditch my stock front tank for something wvo friendly. I've seen custom under bed tanks in the 40 gal range, but have yet to find a cost effective non steel tank.

Any thoughts?

I have heard (don't know this as fact) that these factory tanks have a liner inside preventing rust and such. Not sure of that but if its true, it should be WVO compatible. Also there are some years that had plastic diesel tanks.

Ok, no bio

I'm only planning on ever running WVO, so I should be ok with it then.

But um.. whats the deal with Bio-d will it eat the tank apart?

Won't eat the tank but will remove the urathane coating in pieses which causes all sorts of hell.

I've been running svo in the front stock tank for 40K miles. With just a hot fox in there you're never going to generate enough heat to have a significant worry with poly. Save your money for something more interesting than an 18 gallon fuel tank.

LOL, you go right ahead and run it that way but please don't be giving advice like that.
Its possible you have the factory coated tank. But others who read this may not have and you WILL get poly in there eventually. It doesn't take much heat at all.
