Hey that is a great point. I should have noted that I used all new components. And I always use new components with everything that I do (Just personal choice and preference.) I would never weld or try to get anyone else to weld a tank that had been used or had fuel in it previously. (Very dangerous)

I honestly couldnt tell you if the tank is safe for diesel. I never asked although I think the diesel engine version of the rig that I got the tank from uses a different tank. (Let me double check on that and get back to you)

In re-reading your post I may have misinterpretted what you posted but wanted to be sure so somebody else doesnt misread it as well and try welding onto the tank itself. IMHO I would attach the 2" to 1" reducer at or near the filler neck itself rather than on the tank.

One question about the tank itself ... is it diesel compatible?
