    I have a pair of aluminum 300 gal fuel tanks in the engine room of my Bertram 54. They deserve closer inspection. I have observed only minor corrosion in the past. I sprayed them with corrosion block.

    Corrosion usually starts from the inside out, at the bottom from water accumulating at the bottom. Or from the outside if the tank ate set on plywood.

    I hate alum diesel tanks, most are a ticking time bomb
