hey there was a thread on DBW a few months ago, pretty sure it was a '03 model and warranty covered it if Im remembering correctly. Should help you get the same deal.

I have a Clarke tank(black) and love it. The fit and finish is perfect and the swap only took a few minutes. Do a search, there have been some good threads on the subject.

I second the vote for a Clarke. Mine's clear in color for off-road racing though. Fit and install is a breeze............
