Painting it would defeat the purpose of that.

The fuel vapors actually permeate the plastic on the fuel tank.even though they hold the liquid they let the vapors pass through in small amounts.
So paint the tank at your own risk!

get a big tupperware storage tub that the tank will fit in. boil a bunch of pots of water, add dye, and fill the tank with dye water, and submerge it in dye water.
Ive done this to small plastic parts from RC cars and whatnot. most clear or white plastics take dye very well.

plan was if it would be possible to paint to tape off 1 square section to make like a window to leave it clear in that part for the look at the fuel level
