I already called them, and it was a bit pricey. Though I am not sure what the going rate should be. Guess I'm going to find out though, but I've already heard prices ranging from $5-12 per gallon. Florida Marine tanks was $10 w/ a month lead time.

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.
