There was a time when steel fuel tanks were made, and then a rubbery material was poured into the fill fitting, and the tank rotated to line the inside with the material. I do not know if that is still done.
If no electrical wires are attached to an aluminum fuel tank, and it is not allowed to sit in a puddle of salt water, and no SS fasteners are touching it, then it should not corrode. You can always use an auto undercoating paint to protect the exterior of the tank.
