    well, it depends on the year, mine is a 02 and i have a steel tank that sits in the middle of the frame all the way back near the tow plate...

    That's what mine is as well. The protective plate is actually what holds the tank up in place. My tank had rusted. We've patched it up for now but don't know how long it will last.

    if you search http://car-part.com/ in the northeast region, for aft tank, you will find 4 40 gallon tanks. 1 in Connecticut, 1 in NY, and 2 in Pennsylvania.

    I get the "your 99 is plastic" all the time. Oh,Really plastic rusts? Or did they clad the plastic tank in steel? I just replaced the straps and the tank sure looks like it's made o steel.

    It can be a mixture. My '97 PSDhas a plastic front tank, and a metal rear one.
