Hi Dustmike 12
I have just replaced a tank in my vehicle which I purchased from 4wd systems in Adelaide, I looked at a lot of sites but I found them to be the best for two reasons ,construction all made from I think 3mm steel and has a neet finish,price tag of $800 to my door .one place hear in melbourne wanted just over $1000 for a tank 12 litres less, if you are like me and have a spare car you will have extra time and you can fit it yourself and save $.
Cheers

Are they made of some sort of steel that wont rust.
Or just plain stuff?

Yeh they might look like good value and work fine for a while, but then when you inevitably get a bit of moisture in there they will start to rust and clog filters etc
If you can only afford a cheap one, you probly can't afford to fix things later.
There should be some sort of standard for this sort of thing, imagine buying a car which was painted on the outside but unpainted were you cant see it :(

Were I work they use gal sheet for cabinets etc and there is a price rise of 25% this month, and this has to be passed on to the customer, but you do get what you pay for I guess
