Econoline tank replacement/relining options?

So the I have the classic decontamination issue on my 06 E350. Im trying to figure out all my options.


Does anyone make a poly tank for these vans? The only one I can find is the rear axle version for the cutaway.


Can anyone recommend a quality steel or aluminum replacement tank? All the steel ones I found on google seem to be a little on the cheap side. Only aluminum one I can find is UJOR and they dont really seem to interested in selling one.


Anyone have good experience with having a delaminated tank relined?



Thanks

I recently purchased one of the AeroTanks for my van and I have been very happy with it:

Will an Excursion tank fit in the space? Excursion tanks are poly tanks, hold 44 gallons and are mounted at the very rear between the frame rails.

Is it aft axle? If so I think the filler neck would be tricky

I have a factory Ford poly tank from a 2013 complete with fuel pump and carbon unit and a few hoses. Also have a metal one from a 96 with fuel pump. Either one is yours if you come pick it up in Oregon.

Thanks but I'm on the wrong coast.

I had a 40 gallon unit from Aero Tanks in SoCal and was very happy with it.

I've had rusting tanks lined on older/classic vehicles. Call places that do restoration work, they likely know someone that can do the work. Shouldn't be too much money.

$250-350 on RockAuto. Just as good as OEM probably but how long will you realistically keep the van? 20 years? I would think any tank, cheap or not, would last at least that long.
