I suspect you would have to find a sheet metal place that would fab one for you. Out of curiosity (a) why do you need an extra fuel tank and (b) wouldn't your spare tire then "take up all your trunk space?"

Some of the greaser sites have some spare tire aux tanks, I've seen some pretty slick ones.

I am running a subwoofer through the back deck and i need acess to the back deck. Do the greaser website tanks have fuel sending units? Also will the fuel sending units work with my wires going from my old sending unit?

My father inlaw is a welder, he made the aluminum tank I use in my 240 for WVO. If you give me specs I could have him make one. Not sure where you are, but shipping could be more than $50. PM me if you are interested.

Does it have to go in the spare tire well? If not just get a race cell, you should be able to find one with all the things you need.
