My Truck is a '72 C20 Longbed.
I am replacing all my fuel tanks (Stock behind the seat plus the two saddle tanks) with a '73-'81 Blazer tank. With plans for a future engine swap from the 402BB/TH400 to an L96 and 6L80E I have been considering the TanksInc 25 Gallon TM15-T EFI tank. Since I don't want the hassle of the center fill in the bed. The Side Marker light modification to Filler Door looks cool and very clean, however here in California it won't work due to the size of the Gas Station Fuel nozzle won't fit in the hole. So my first idea was to go out the back using a flip down license plate however that area is too low to work (Bummer since that would be super easy and very clean!). This leaves me with going out the side coming up through the extreme corner of the bed 9" from the tailgate then out the side. I will make a sheet metal cover for the filler tube, use a filler neck grommet to secure it the inner bed side then cut a hole in the outer bedside just below and in front of the rear side marker light with a nice billet fuel door (I know it would be easier to just install it in the corner of the bed :smile : ).
Questions: Has anyone installed one of these tanks from TanksInc?
Has anyone else installed a Blazer tank in a C20 Longbed?
Any other thoughts or ideas?
