I did use about 3 layers of tire inter tube superglued together. I had it loose before but the tank kept going completely sideways when I would ride at speed. I guess I'll look for the sweet spot. I think the main problem would be my top tube is curved so the tank sits on one point. I'm going to add a lot thicker rubber between the studs so it sits directly on those two spots.
