Raise the tank a few millimeters.
Do so by getting using spacers between tank and frame, and extending nuts and 1" metric studs (or make some by cutting off the heads of metric bolts).
Orrr, you could also use two 4" x 3/4" (approximately) metal plates and four additional nuts and bolts to "sandwich" clamp the tank to the bar.
It's simple and easy. You can do it.
