Edit - also my tank was made by Aluminum Fabricated Products from Perry, FL , but I heard they have gone under.

Just a couple of thoughts,most new tanks are.1875 or 1/8" thickness.You may may want to consider 3/16 ",the weight increase is small.Also,for possible use with future fuels,consider Alloys and inside / outside coatings.
