That would actually look pretty cool mounted as a belly tank.

How exactly would a drop tank end up in some dude's garage?

It is a drop tank. They use them on military aircraft for extended flights. Once the tank is empty, they drop them off to save weight....isn't really used much any more, but popular at one.

Looks to be in good shape, must not have been used or else it dropped onto water judging by the condition.

Semi-tractors often carry 100 gallon tanks that are about 7 feet long, but 11 feet might be a little too much for me. It would actually fit under there, but can you imagine standing at the pump filling that thing?

I knew you would know what that was. That thing is huge. I was hoping to be able to put a pump, blower, and Briggs on it Very Happy
