    The tank was under water when removed, there was no drain added to the fuel well only a breather line. I plan to fix this with a bit of piping and a stop cock. The builder must of thought that he had it water tight, but pop rivets and silicone have a lot to be desired.
    I found a company by chance just now that make custom plastic tanks, and their in Aus.
    Ill give them a ring in the morning.
    Many Thanks
