Question Mini truck aux fuel tank BTDTs?

I've been looking at NWMP and Downey for an aux tank for the mini truck. Anyone btdt and have advice for me? Any other vendors I should look at before pulling the trigger?

I have looked at the NW ones but I can't see spending that kind of cash for a tank. I would look for a boat tank or something like that since it is a gravity fed design anyway.

Yes, the NWMP tank is spendy for only 13 more gallons. And the spare goes back under the new tank so that adds a wrinkle to my already long rear overhang. I can't put the storage solution in my bed tho, because I sleep back there.

Question

There's no good way to link to the NWMP tank, but here's the Downey tank page. It's cheaper and holds a gallon more, still gravity feed design. I could go all expo/safari and put my spare on the hood to preserve clearance in the rear. Still don't know what to do with my NATO cans tho.
