    The stock petcock required opening the holes for the fuel tubes slightly. I used a 11/32" bit to pull the hole out slightly. This allowed the raised portion at the base of the screens to clear for installation.

    As mentioned in the other thread, the right side panel on mine is pulled forward a little. Not bad enough to require modification on mine.

    Is anything perfect? This comes close enough for me I'm happy with it and so is my wife. Guess that is what counts

    I just received a white one the other day, like it. No leaks, seems to work fine. The fit is very good, no issues with mounting.
    When in doubt, Gas it!

    Received my new Clarke Tank yesterday, white, for my '07. Fits great, no leaks.

    Has anyone ever soldered an extension brass tube on the "Reserve" side? Looks like it could be done. More Reserve? Packed and leaving OKla. tomorrow for Colorado. TAT through New Mexico and Colorado.

    Interesting idea. I think a length of tight-fitting stiff gas line forced onto the end would do just as well, I doubt you'd want more than 1" anyway?

    Installed mine this evening, grommets don't line up well but everything else is very fine. I'll figure something out or get those shifted.



    Any thoughts on whether or not this tank will drain better, as in make good use of the entire contents?

    It fit just like the stock tank. Well pretty close. One line was very close to the tank where it fits over them so I cut a piece of fuel line and slipped over it to insulate between the line and the plastic tank.

    Pretty much no problems. I did not have to make any changes to get it to fit.
