    I just want to add an un-asked-for comment, which you probably already know:
    If you make an Aluminium or stainless tank for a vehicle application, be very wary of mounting it using brackets built into the tank. This is commonly done as it allows one to increase the capacity, but the fatigue properties of those materials make trouble later quite likely.

    If possible, hang it in straps. If not, make sure significant gussets spread the loads to a wide area.
