quick hint.....and ye sI know this cause I've done it. DO NOT weld a tank even if it is bone dry. Fumes stay in that sucker for years.........did a beetle tank and it had last been used like 3 years previously and saw the tabk blow to what's basically known as a beach ball shape.

Fill the tank up with water ALL THE WAY when welding the tank, that's if you're going to do it yourself. If not, take it to a pro........

Default a little hint

i thought my tank was leaking last year and it set me back about 200 bucks for the tank and the straps. after pulling the old tank, i realized that the sending unit was what was actually leaking. another 80 bucks later, i had totally stopped the leak. a little hint before replacing a tank, take it down to a shop and have it undercoated and have a petcock installed. not many replacement tanks come with a drain plug so its a good thing to slap on there.
