Yes, get rid of the metal tanks. Also consider the operation of a gauge on a 50L tank. Tank gauges IMHO give only two accurate readings - Full and Not Full, and I believe Full when I can see fuel at the neck. The error factor in a small 50L tank feeding a 115hp motor will be so large that once you go below half full, the gauge reading will become practically useless, i.e. when the gauge is at 25%, you won't be sure if it has 5L or 15L. You'll find yourself checking it anyway.
