Not sure yet if it's going to be necessary, but need to be prepared! I've searched this forum and recommended links without much luck. Can someone explain how I would go about purchasing a new fuel (gas) tank for my '97 Dodge Ram Van B3500 (if that's even possible???)

Following, I haven't come to that time. I would like to make a fuel tap whenever I get around to buying a petrol heater. (Ford Transit has in-line tap for accessories)
I hope I won't need to replace my tank.
I'm thinking junkyard or custom made.

If you are in the Mid-NC area , there seems to be a hot streak of 1997 models going on at area LKQ salvage yards. Currently 5 - 1997 models on hand between GSO, Raleigh, and Durham locations. Plus a 1994 and a 1974

All of them should be local rust-free vehicles going by the pictures.

Thank you! I'm going to try a few things before I give up on this tank, but this information is very helpful. Sure hope I don't waste money with the initial attempts only to find out I really do need a new tank! Hate when that happens!

Uh I don't know why your replacing tank---you could make a tap in the fuel line after the in-tank pump but you would have make all types of safety switches rollover/shut off/on--there's a lot of particulars involved here--if there's anything mfg has to do this I would go that route--check with gas heater mfg and see if they have a set up for that vehicle or send you some place (camper conversions) that has that setup--so you don't go down in flames

Lots of these on car-part.com.
