Looking For WVO Tank

OK just purchased my vegistroke kit and am now looking for a tank. Looking for one somewhat close to Saratoga Springs. I have seen the 51 gallon smooth tanks for 250 up here. so if anyone has an idea let me know. can we still get tanks from RDS now that DFA is down??? has anyone see the inside of the RDS tank. contemplating building a custom one

RDS is in Perry, Florida. I have one of their aluminum marine tanks (13 gallons) as my heated VO tank in the trunk of my Mercedes and ordered it direct from RDS. But even though shipping to California was very expensive for me I'm totally satisfied with it and can recommend RDS as a great tank manufacturer.

on edit: Just remembered that my 70 gal aluminum transfer tank in my truck was made by RDS but sold by Northern Tool. I installed an Arctic Fox coolant heated fuel warmer so I could still pump VO during winter into my front stock tank. FYI OBS Fords have two stock tanks.

The Arctic Fox is a long SS loop that surrounds the pickup tube warming only the fuel around it. It's different from a Hot Fox which is a heated pickup tube itself. I like it. I only have it there so in winter my 12v FillRite transfer pump can handle pumping warm VO to the front tank because without it my pump would seize up trying to pump cold VO as it's really only rated for diesel.

Does this mean you're keeping the V3 that you were selling?
