Question In tank LP vs. block mounted LP?

Are the new in tank LP's better than the old block mounted ones? I just put a new IP and LP on my truck 2 weeks ago. Now the sending unit in the tank is leaking fuel from the top fittings. My local mechanic called Dodge and said the only way to get a new sending unit is to buy the new one with the tank mounted LP, ahhhh. My mechanic said he can take it a part and maybe fix the old one, but he is not sure. But I guess if the in-tank LP is more reliable, I should probably just go with it. Let me know what you guys think.
:shrug:

Thanks,
Mac

Yeap, FASS is the way to go even though I've heard of a few going out. It's still where I'd put my money at.

Hmm.. That's another reason why i am choosing the holley/carter pusher pump route. It's cheap to replace if one does go out.

Just remember if you put one in the tank it will never go bad when the tank is empty. Putting an external pump on will be much easier to deal with than an in tank unit.
