portable gas tank?

After re-fitting my fuel line, found cracks and other issues with my 6 gallon tank. Need new one. Read reviews on both Attwood and Five Oceans types and many reported leaks and bulging as these new tanks are not venting properly? Some have quick-fixed by venting caps or swapping with older type vented caps. Any recommendations for a plastic 6 gallon portable tank?

Re: portable gas tank?

Just read that they now suggest a Fuel Demand Valve be fitted between the tank and the inline bulb to prevent fuel entering motor. I went to straight 1/4" id line from the tank (no quick connect just a straight brass barb 1/4" fitting) to the inline filter- and no bulb.

Re: portable gas tank?

Just ordered a Moeller/Tempo 6 gallon tank with gauge- My old cap should fit the new tank. Overtons was having a sale- even with shipping cheaper than local suppliers.

Just noticed they sell replacement cap on Amazon with manual vent to replace the newer EPA cap.

New Moeller 6 gallon tank arrived! Old manual vent cap from Tempo tank fits fine! Do you use teflon or permatex on brass fittin?
