Fuel Tanks

Is it safe to run metal tanks with Diesel or do you really need to run a poly tank??

You can use a metal tank. I am installing a custom made, 45 gal, steel tank, in the bed of my truck now. Just make sure you keep it full, to reduce water from condensation, and use a fuel/water separator.

What about galvanized tanks? I've heard diesel makes it come off.
