Yeah, the wheel well is pretty much as low as the fuel tank. I figure it would balance the car a bit more with it farther back once I have the added weight if the SC up front. Plus I just think fuel cells are cool, because race car, you know?

I found a great deal on a mint used tank for $85 shipped, worked out good.

So the tank I got is from an early model with the single hole for the fuel pump, and no hole for the sending unit...The listing was wrong.

Yeah if you notice my picture is actually of a late model tank... I rewired it to run the later model sending units and single pump. Made life easier and added a gallon or two capacity =P
