Aluminum is a very suitable material for boat fuel tanks, as long as they are installed correctly, mounted properly and inspected regularly.

The enemy of all metal tanks is water. Any metal tank should be mounted so that moisture will not collect on any surface. One of the most common mistakes is mounting a tanks metal tank on a sheet of plywood, foam, rubber or some other material that absorbs moisture. The moisture dissolves the oxide and corrodes the bottom of the tank. Ideally the tank should have air circulating around it on all sides including the top and bottom. To allow air under the tank requires using brackets that raise the tank above the mounting surface. This is by far the best way to mount an aluminum tank.

If the Aluminum boat tanks is kept clean and dry the oxide will reform and again protect the metal. For this reason aluminum tanks and boats are generally not painted. It is best to leave tanks bare.
