Ive used a product made for seating auto window glass in the door channels. It's called, 'window setting tape' and any auto glass shop will have it. They'll probably give you a foot for free if you ask nice. It is about 1/8" thick and when wetted with a solvent like WD40, it becomes slippery but dries and becomes an adhesive that will hold the tank in place as well as offer some cushioning too. Hope this helps.
Oh, C'MON! Now you're just showing off!
Does that tape offer an advantage over double sided tape?
Since your well is deep I have an off topic question. What would you use to thoroughly clean a chain prior to apply chain lube? My new bike is extra long so I connected a couple chains together that had already been shortened from prior builds and even more so I could have a length to act as a theft deterrent for those that would think my nice and cushiony quilted seat is a quick lick. Anyways I want it perfectly clean and slippery chain for my new build. Cleaner and lube brand suggestions are welcome.
