I just realizes that there are a number of sources for new gas tanks. Does anyone have experience with different tanks or are they all manufactured by the same source? Are they all the same? I also would like to know specifically what the difference is between the early (70-74) and the later tank design.
Thanks

Be careful with Sierra Madre. I believe they sell only the later style of tank. I needed an early version. Ended up returning the new tank to Sierra Madre, at my expense, in order to get a refund. Their website did not explain the difference when I bought it about 6 months ago. The website had said the tank fits all years, yet it lacks the mounting tabs needed for the evap system on earlier cars.
