Mine will need replacing before the summer. I have a manual 4DR 325i, 1988.

Thanks!

I'm seeing some pretty big rust spots, and it was seriously banged up during the winter by the idiots at crappy tire who can't place a lift arm properly. It's only a matter of weeks before it starts to leak, methinks.

If you can't find a used one, RockAuto has them for ~$250 shipped.

I'm in the same boat. I've called 2 shops and taken the tank to 2 others and they all asked for more than $300 and told me to buy a new tank. Apparently once they sand blast the seem it will fall apart at the mounting holes, needing a ton of welding.

RockAuto and The Gas Tank Exchange seem like the best deals.
