The new engine is on the way and the transom of the Montauk is buffed and ready. I'm going all new with my fuel system and I want two 12 gal. tanks for under the RPS. I don't want a single 24 or 27 gal-just 2 12 gal. Does Tempo make one that fits? The ULTRAPBW has dimensions that says it will fit. Anyone with experience? How about Moeller? All I found are those Gas-Scans by Attwood but they seem cheap. Any thoughts?

If you want the best, get yourself a pair of aluminum 12 gallon tanks from Mirax. They will probably cost you about $350 for the pair.

The contact info for Mirax is here: along with a discussion of these tanks.

Tom's advice is good, but very pricey. Otherwise the Tempo 13 gallon Ultra PBW's, $39.95/ea in current Bass Pro marine catalog, are your best bet. Moellers in this 13 gallon capacity, are odd shaped at bottom, and won't work. I use a pair of the these Tempo's under my Outrage RPS for extended range cruising. They work fine.

Thanks for the info. I may have to go the cheap route-at least this year. So the PBW's fit under the seat? No modifications? Thanks!

Masbama, I have two of the tempo tanks in my Montauk. They work fine. Because they have rounded edges, they sometimes shift a little aft in rough water. They are a real tight fit (vertically) because of the gas caps. I purchased 2 quicksilver caps at a mercury dealer. They are $7 or so each and sit about .75 inches lower. I had a pair of these tanks that were stolen from my boat, so I bought a new one and run with 1 13gal, and 1 7.5gal. Buy them at Bass Pro - only $40 each, or take a bass pro catalog to West Marine and see if they will price match.
