I am looking for a 28 gallon Tempo tank for below the RPS, seems many locations still list as carrying these tanks but because Tempo is dead no one has in stock.

Look for a Moeller tank. They have always been better quality then Tempo anyway.

See http://www.amazon.com/Moeller-Boating-Topside-Mechanical-26-Gallon/dp/ B000MT950K/ref=sr_1_33?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1214881824&sr=1-33

I agree with going to the Moeller. I have a Tempo 28 gallon tank and it works fine, but other have reported problems. The Moeller appears to be more rigid than the Tempo. The fuel gage on the Tempo is not the best either.

Moeller 26 gallon is $149.00 at Bass Pro Shops.

Get a Moeller, maybe its me but I could swear the plastic is thicker on the Moeller tank I have. My 19 gallon Tempo used to distort a lot. My 26 gallon Moeller keeps the same shape

I would prefer the Moeller but do not want to have to modify the RPS legs to have it fit. Most of the archive info I have read says the RPS legs need to be raised.

Does the tank fit without raising the legs?

I have removed the mats so that will add a small amount of space

You don't need to raise the RPS legs for a Moeller.

Tempo stuff was always junk... that's why they are out of business.

Both Tempo and Moeller tanks need to be slid aft a few inches to fill. You do it when they are empty... big deal.

Hinging the seat is an ingenious solution to a nonexistant problem.

Buy a Moeller and enjoy it.

I have owned a Tempo 27 gal tank that is used in my 1987 17 montauk. fits perfect, you do not have to slide it out to fill with gas. I have seen these tanks for sale on the internet.

Are you still looking for a Tempo 27 gallon fuel tank? If so I have one I bought last year from West Marine. I used it for extra capacity when I was offshore fishing for halibut.

Thanks for the reply. I decided to go with two of the Tempo 12 gallon highs.
