    I was doing some work on my blazer over the weekend and noticed my gas tank is leaking. since I have to replace it I was thinking of getting a bigger tank, but don't know what will fit. I'm also considering an aftermarket tank.

    any suggestions?

    thanks,
    Josh

    I bought an Aerotank <a target="_blank" href=http://www.aerotanks.com/tanks.htm>http://www.aerotanks.com/tanks.htm</a>. Like it, but other guys have northwest Metal Products tanks that they like as well. Costly. Another option is the poly tank available from almost any truck parts vendor.

    I did the NWMP 37gallon tank. I had a replacement tank made out of Polyethelane that was a 21gallon stock replacement tank. The tank worked and installed easy but i wanted more distance than a measly 200miles so I upgraded to the NWMP tank. I have pics in my gallery listed below.
    Good luck

    I have a 40 gallon tank, presumably an Aero. It's older than the hills and has the rust and dents to prove it. I had to weld and solder the sender back together because it broke apart. No fun to remove because it doesn't have a drain plug (I added one). The NWMP 37 gallon tanks have a drain plug in them.
