Has anyone found a perfect, under seat tank for the new Sport 13 design, that holds 12 gallons or so?

How many hours do you get now with a 6 gal tank? I have a 40hp Merc on my 13' and it runs a long time on a full tank. It's new this year so I have no real numbers on fuel usage.

I've got a 30 on mine, and 6 gallons does me fine for most days fishing. I just got the 12 gal. idea after having my boat in the water for a week at the coast, and ran out of gas after several days of running around! I really don't know how many hours I get per 6, but I figured with 12 gal., I'd never run out. Maybe it is just an "easy" upgrade I am looking for. Maybe I'll add a clete or something instead....

I have a 12 gallon Tempo tank under the seat in my 1976 15' Sport. I don't know the space you have on yours, but the tank is 8" high and fits fine. They also make a 14 gallon, but it's 9" high. Only disadvantage I've found is that when there's only one person in the boat (side console), all the fuel runs to the heavy side, making it even heavier! Result is a tip to the right. Advantage is more deck space.
