is that the tank from the coleman dual fuel three burner? i was just looking at those the other day for my goodyear. let me know how it works.
Thanks for the tips on sealing the threaded end of the aluminum tank.
No, this is an aluminum fuel tank so that campers can carry extra fuel. It is about the size of a propane tank (not the squat one, but the one you'd use with a torch) and it has a threaded plastic stopper at the end. It is the end that a 3/4" copper male fitting will screw in to. The one I got is aluminum colored, as if it were clean coated. When I used fine steel wool to remove the "Coleman" logo, the aluminum inderneath shined up nicely, so if this tank works out I'll buff up the whole thing. It should look nice.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
