Custom Fuel Tanks

I am in the process of designing a console for my new rib and i would like to put the fuel tank in the jockey seat, i can seem to find any fuel tanks with a small enough width to fit comfortably inside. Does any one know who makes custom plastic or stainless tanks.

Thanks

James

Is there some reason (type of plastic maybe)you can't use a custom diesel tank for petrol with the appropriate fitments?

They say you can specify your own take-offs.

We do custom built stainless tanks The one just built for our Carson 600 was designed to go under the jockey seat, with a capacity of 105 litres
