        The tanks edges were bent and the box was nearly ripped completely open. Overall it was what I needed.

          Comments about Spectra Premium Fuel Tank:

          I got this as a gift for fathers day from my wife and kids. It's a good quality tank that fits well. The corners of the sheetmetal are a little sharp so caution should be taken when handling. Tank came with 2 gaskets and lock rings which is a plus so you don't have to buy them seperatly. I did have to bend the tabs on the tank that hold the lock rings up a bit with a screwdriver in order to fit the pump bracket top collar down all the way. Not much of a problem and would probably have to do that with any other tank depending on the thickness of your sending units top collar

            I only wish it would have came with the padding like what is on the stock tank. Just had to make the best of it and pull the old pieces off slowly.

                    What is the name of the assembly that goes into the lower side hole of the gas tank. Is it the thing that gives the inside gas needle its readings?
