Additionally it accepts the stock sending unit without needing an adapter. The only difference is that it is a 15 gal tank. No big deal..I like the idea that I will never have to worry about rust.
All I did to use my sending unit was unscrewed it from the round piece that gets bolted down to the tank on both and switched them. It took me less than 5 minutes to switch them, but I do like the idea of no more
