So I just home home from work and my new tank and the strap hardware kit were waiting for me in the driveway. I just opened the tank and of course, the lock ring and gasket that are explicitly said to be included are not there. Now i gotta call and ***** and get them to send me a lock ring and gasket and it'll probably be a hassle because they will want to return this tank and send out another or something stupid. I'll keep you informed. In the meantime... I'm running out of pans to catch the fuel. I'll probably buy a new can and see if i can pump out the remainder using a transfer pump.

Pleasantly surprised that advance auto parts seems to be working to send me the missing lock ring and gasket with no issues. We'll see how it works out

So, after not telling me anything for a couple days, Advance Auto made good by sending me a replacement via next day air.. as good as that sounds.... they sent me another tank. The good news is that the last part of the order, a sending unit showed up today and I was initially disturbed because the box had been badly abused. I quickly got over that when I discovered the intact sending unit along with the missing lock ring and gasket inside. So they sent me another tank as a replacement for the lock ring and gasket that they failed to mention was not included with the tank, but shipped inside the other box with the sending unit. I guess I'm happy, but I hate seeing such disorder and waste. Anyway, I doubt they want the tank back since it will probably cost more to ship it than it's worth at this point. I'm guessing that next day air charge was not less than $105 (full price of the tank). I already asked my buddy if it will fit his dad's truck. Now I just have to figure out the lines.

After checking out all the fittings and hoses and blah blah blah, I think I'm going to go with the Leroy Diesel pre-lift filter setup instead of doing the AN lines. I can delete the tank sock and add the spin on filter before the pump for about the same price. So I'm browsing their site now and I'll probably order it... makes more sense.
