    Looking for advise on a new gas tank. My current 25?gal tank is shot and the sending unit is wrecked. From LMC, I'm looking at about $500 for both. Aero Tanks has a 40 gal. complete for $ 450. anybody tried them ? any other ideas? I've got an 87 Jimmy 350 TBI 700-r4. Thanks for helping.

    i paid $120.00 for the tank
    and around $300.00 for a sending
    unit / not including fuel pump.

    I got prices of $100 to $125 from local boneyards for the tank and sending unit. I also got prices of $100 to $150 for just a new 32 gal. tank. I ended up taking the tank from my 80 that is blown up. Still haven't put it in the 83 yet,I'm waiting till I find someone to fix the rusted out gate hinge area cause the tank will have to come out anyhow.
