i just had my fuel tank replaced because of "cracks in top of fuel tank" per a recall notice i received from ford (98m03 kit bb). however, they replaced the previous metal tank with a plastic fuel tank. i have never heard of plastic fuel tanks being allowed on vehicles. i do not believe a plastic tank can be as safe as a metal tank. is it legal to put a plastic fuel tank on a car/truck??
