Gas Tank Sending Unit Ground Wire Question

Hey guys,

I am replacing my gas tank on my 69 Camaro. I bought a new one and had it power coated. My question is do I have to attach the sending unit ground wire to the tank like the original or can I just splice it an attach it to another piece of metal or the frame? Thanks

I'm pretty sure it's got to be hooked to the tank. If the tank has the strap pads installed on both the top and bottom it is isolated and the voltage to the sender has no path back to ground. Brian

I would want the tank grounded to the frame also.
