I have a polaris tank (from SL750) it is 10 gal; about 15 inches wide.

Otherwise, maybe just use a 6 gal outboard tank?

Probably too costly, but you could have an aluminum tank built to fit.

What are the measurements that you could get a tank into? I agree that if space is that tight you could just have it custom fab. I got an aluminum guy who made me a 14 gallon skinny tank for $200.

so aluminum tanks are ok to use i figured condensation would get in so i have two sheets aluminum .125 31x23 i could fold a 90 degree in both cut to size weld in the ends
are there aluminum nipples you weld in and what about a filler cap

I don't know anything about the fittings, but Northern Tool has a number of them on their list. I'll bet any aluminum welders in your area can put you onto the fittings.

Take a look at RDS designs. They use a fuel input elbow, a vent, a hole for the fuel sender (gas gauge) and then an elbow with the check valve that threads into the tank. You could always call them with your custom measurements and get a quote, they are great!!!
