Default Has anyone found a plastic fuel tank that will fit?


I know there is a guy named Mike that manufactures OEM-look SS fuel tanks.

However, has anyone found a plastic fuel tank that will fit and adapt to the fill hose? My M725 leaked during the winter and I didn't notice it 'till the snow melted and I saw the dead grass. I realize I may need to find a way to make the fill hose diameter smaller.

Possibly someone has found a plastic replacement, shipped to 14609?

I looked at fuel cells and RV fuel station tanks when I was considering swapping out my tank. My original tank ended up being able to be repaired, so I never measured for another type. But I did run a fuel cell in the bed while the big tank was out.

This is what I did whilst I was waiting for my stainless steel tank. However... driving around the yard caused a lot of gas to slosh out!!!
