Hey everyone, with the new 350 engine and a 4 bbl performance carb.

i believe MTS gas tanks are made in USA. i found one on ebay for about $250. Also there is one more made by Omix for about $480. why is that difference? İ dont believe in Omix quality.

I think the MTS tanks are superior to the OEM. No rust, and because they are flexible, would probably be better than the metal.

Anything that would knock a hole in the Poly tank would also knock a hole in a metal tank.

I have had a couple of MTS tanks. The 21 actually gave me a 23 gallons (include lines and filler line). They fit with no alternations, however the bracket that extends the tank down did rub against the differential cover on occasion.

The guys at MTS are also very helpful if you need to call.

I would have no problem recommending a MTS tank.
