The SS tanks are OK for fuel, except

1.) They will not have a certified MFg sticker on them (insurance / coast guard issues ( pressure test req.)

2.) If you leave them in the bulge you will need a fuel lift pump to the engine as they are lower than the engine.

so in general people do not do reuse ss water tanks

My suggestion if you want to reuse them, cut them down so that they will fit like a tray on top of the new water tanks allowing you to use the space as storage tools, heavy stuff etc.

There is about 3" between the top of the new tanks and the bottom of the sole.

Hope this helps
Norm

P.S. Bud may have other ideas for their reuse.
