The 1988 SUPER SPORT that I am now restoring came with a 15-galllon Pate Plastics fuel tank that fits under the pilot seat. It is red in color and appears to be in great condition. My first impulse was to scrap the tank, but, now, I wonder, since I boat in waters where non-ethanol gas is available and there is a station selling the same within two miles of my house, if I should just keep the tank and be careful as to what I put in it. A new tank is about $200. Are any of you still using red Pate Plastics fuel tanks?

If you have non-ethanol gas available, your Pate tank is still an excellent tank. It's what we all wanted and many of us paid a lot for back before ethanol ruined their usefulness. The one I had was recycled into a motorcycle racers trailer, where it's been storing gasoline now for about ten years with complete satisfaction. Keep it and enjoy it.

Do yourself a favor and get/have a custom alum fuel tank made for your boat...

If you want something ready-made, and it will fit, the Moeller.
