Gas Tank for Sniper EFI

I'm adding sniper EFI with Hyper Spark Distributor and looking at replacing the fuel tank. Does anyone have this setup ? My fuel tank has a leak. Any suggestions for a new Fuel Tank?

No replacements are available that I'm aware of, but plenty of folks have good pulls to sell.

Curious as to your leak. Leaks when full? Leaks all the time? Sometimes the vents get plugged up and the tank pressurizes and leaks out through the front vent grommet -- but you would probably only notice that when the tank is full, or if you've been offroad.

If it only leaks when full, then I would bet you have plugged tank vents, and/or bad rubber tank vent grommets. Both the tank vent and grommet are available new.

I just put a Sniper EFI on my '90, and I used a surge tank from RobbMc. It has the high pressure pump in a ~2qt can, and is slosh-proof. I installed it under the hood where the charcoal canister used to live. No need to upgrade your tank, or build any type of high pressure pump rail underneath your rig. I can't recommend the surge tank method enough.
