Most new autos trucks and cars use the plastic tanks!I have one thats been in the car for 6 years , Sounds like the tanks you have seen collapse have no vent ,all tanks must be vented one way or another!

EBlack36 I have all of my tanks made by a local welder out of stainless with baffels installed made to my specs for about $200.00. I got tired of trying used tanks that did not fit good and then leaked.

WoodsEdge Where are you located?? I've got a junk 47 sedan and not sure but think the tanks good. I'm in western N.C. , about 20 miles west of Hickory.

My bad, went out and checked that tank and the bottom looks like screen wire. Sorry.

roys63 You might check a small boat catalog or store , they have many different size fuel tanks in alum and Polly plastic, some NAPA stores sell marine parts all so.
