565 I had what looks exactly like this cell in my 70 Chevelle. After I did the Power tour in 99 I parked it in my garage for about a week before I looked at it again. Needed a break !!! Anyway I smelled heavy gas when I went back into garage. Gas dripping out of trunk. One of the welds where the tabs were mounted must've gotten a hair line crack after almost 4000 miles of driving over 10 days. Just my experience with aluminum fuel cells... your results may differ and i'm sure mine was an anomaly because I never heard of this happening to anyone else. Went with a poly tank after that.
