    I am looking for an aluminum or stainless aftermarket gas tank for my duster. I am going to EFI soon,so I want a baffled tank with a sump and efi pump in it. anyone know of anybody making any?

    Use a late 60's mustang tank
    I plan to do this eventually to my car
    You can get them in aluminum with baffles and have a higher capacity than factory
    The spare tire well is would be deleted, but useless unless running factory wheel and tire setup anyway

    Do a web search for Tanks Inc., they make a tank already setup for EFI.

    I installed a 69' mustang tank in my duster. I had a hole from the fuel cell and a 20 gallon fit perfect after a little trimming. I had a friend weld up a 10an with a pickup tube inside and capped off the filler and installed a new one in the back of the tank hooked up to the stock fill location. Came out nice. And cheaper than a $500-600 custom tank.

    Why not the Aeromotive Phantom system and a new stock tank? That's my plan for an EFI fuel system. It's simple enough, that's for sure.

    That's my future plan too. I have efi w/ a factory tank modified sender and an external fuel pump. It works well, but the aftermarket senders are so inaccurate.

    I just bought the 340 lph version on Amazon for 429.99.

    http://www.amazon.com/Aeromotive-18688-Phantom-Fuel-System/dp/B00A4B57I0

    Looks nice actually. I'm pretty sure there won't be any starvation problems so long as there is at least a little bit (a gallon or so) of gas in the tank.

    Look up vapor works. They sell either a fuel tank or the to setup(can't remember which) but if they don't they have a company that makes a stainless steel baffled tank with their EFI setup (which use oem EFI parts).

    I talked to the owner Jeff the other day. I am going to go with them. the price is considerably lower than rick's or anybody else. and it has a drain in the bottom if you have to drop the tank. he quoted me $925 to my door! pump and all. rick's was $1750! WTF? even a competitor that put an efi in a new stock tank was $875! so for $50 more I get a better fabbed,baffled,boltin efi tank! no brainer there!

    Tanks Inc is releasing an EFI tanks with two top pick up locations that are recessed. I think it $260 for the tank only and another $220 for a pickup and pump assembly. I don't think the tank is aluminum though.

    Price and pick updated below.

    My first thought when I read the title of this thread was HotRod City Garage. Seems like other people have used them too. Here's their web address if anyone needs it.

    http://www.hotrodcitygarage.com/

    I've seen their tanks up close and personal at the Pomona, CA Swapmeet (terrible place to go for MOPAR parts, there aren't any). They're pretty nice with baffles.
