Fuel tanks are most likely fiberglass. That could pose a problem with today's fuels. I have owned four Motions and most had tank problems. The fix for me was installing aluminum tanks. Skaters have the same issue.

Skaters HAD the issue, haven't heard of ethanol breakdown since the issue was discovered and Peter made the resin change in the tank construction / older boats had the tanks rebuilt
