Default Re: Alternate Gas Tank, Under Seat?

I got an idea.. Let me float it by you.

You know that the stock tank that comes with these kits does not have a separate vent. The cap fits just loose enough to allow air to enter to displace the fuel as it leaves. And, it also seals it pretty well that it does not get all over you when it sloshes around.

would it be pratical to take the dremel (on a brand new tank, never had fuel in it), to cut the tank cap area and a flange, then solder that to a big soup or tomato can? Then, solder in a fitting at the bottom for the fuel outlet.

I haven't asked, but does the solder hold up well to gasoline? I would think so.
