All the suppliers are backordered on the oval gas tanks with no replenishment date. Anyone know whats going on with them? Also if anyone has a good used tank I would be interested. Thanks.

Don

Don - Not sure where you are, but I have an oval tank I'm not planning on using (with straps). It's original, but looks to be in fairly good condition. PM me if you're interested; I'm in Dayton, Ohio.

Seems like I heard talk at Chickasha a year or so ago that it was getting to be a problem getting galvanized sheet metal to manufacture the tanks.

Not sure about that but it was some type of supply problem or maybe getting the tanks galvanized after building them.

Story I heard was the one guy that made them died. His apprentice took over and was trying to catch up the backorders. That was 2012--maybe he gave up!

Man that would be nice. My biggest problem to be trying to catch up with demand.

There will likely be many for sale at Chickasha, if you are close enough to go. I'll have one.
