It wasn’t very long ago that most boat gas tanks were made of steel. Many times the fuel tanks get rusty and can leak, or rust internally and sediment clogs fuel filters and carburetors. If you find you’re in need of a new boat gas tank or just want to add another OC Boat Supplies has everything you need from brands like Moeller & RDS. If you are looking to replace an old Temp fuel tank they were acquired by Moeller in 2008 so many of their tanks are still available but now under the Moeller name.
Choosing between an aluminum vs plastic tank can be hard and sometimes the answer is what fits in my boat. Plastic is lighter many times a little less expensive, corrosion resistant, and not susceptible to ethanol fuels. Aluminum tanks are extremely strong, can have the added benefit of baffles to prevent fuel sloshing back and forth, and should outlast the boat if kept away from moisture that would cause corrosion.
When replacing your fuel tank this is a perfect time to replace old fill & vent hose, and install new fuel lines.
