Light, strong and tested tough, these aluminum tanks are the choice of many boat manufacturers. Built to meet the rigorous standards of the US Coast Guard as well as the NMMA. RDS fuel tanks are built of 5052 aluminum alloy and tested for their ability to retain pressure and withstand motion, impact and fire. Before welding, all aluminum parts are bathed in acid to eliminate any contamination that might weaken a weld or create the potential for leakage.

Does the job

Comments about Rds Manufacturing V-Bottom Aluminum Fuel Tank - 55GA:

Used this as a replacement for stock 60 gallon tank that had rotted out in my 1992 28' Maxum cabin cruiser. Overall it was a difficult job but the tank is well built with solid welds. It's nice that the sending unit is included and east to wire up.
