I figure if I can get 10 to 15 years out of it, I'll be in good shape, and maybe a plastic tank will be offered by then for cheap. This of course means hoping the rusty Accord is still around in 10 to 15 years.
Yeah, I know a steel tank should last as long as the rest of my car. I just like to fix my car with the idea of it being the most complete archeological find 10,000 years from now.

Also no car newer than mine has really stood out to me as being a better car. (Except possibly the 7th gens) and I'm still in my early 20's [emoji53]

Some times I feel like some of the older guys at the shop. "they just don't make stuff like they used to."
