    QuAd, you do really great quality work.

    I don't know where you got the illustration you show on page one about how to install a fuel tank, but I strongly disagree with Figure 8 showing the slope of the tank. It shows the slope going towards the suction pipe of the pump. The slope should run away from the suction stub toward the other end of the tank. The drain plug should be on this end of the tank also.

    In the illustration, any water collected would be under the suction pipe and could be sucked into the pump.
