Does anyone know what size the original fuel tanks were in a 1980 22' Outrage. Mine only has one tank in the belly but it appears someone removed a smaller tank from the rear portion by the transom?

I think the base boat had a 77 gallon tank. There was an optional 129 gallon tank that replaced the in-the-deck live well just forward of the splash well. I had a '92 model 22 and know this to be correct for that year. My older Whaler catalogs indicate that this is true for some previous years as well. I'm not 100% that the 80 model was the same.

I have a 1980 21.4 Outrage. I called Boston Whaler and asked them what the OEM tank was for my boat. They told me it was BW 40...a 40 gal. tank.

The '79 model was a plastic 77 or 80 gallon. I don't recall an optional tank under the deck in the rear where there was a teak hatch, for that year. I checked my '79 and '80 spec / price books and couldn't find any reference to an optional tank. Could it have been custom fabricated or dealer installed?

BTW - is your tank metal or plastic?

The rear cavity should not be for a fuel tank but a live well. There also could have been a water tank there, not sure if that was an option in 1980 but it was an option in later models.

Everything I have read only lists a single 77 gal or single 129 gallon, never dual fuel tanks.
