To clarify the clarification, all passenger cars have the same aperture for the tank. There is the older flat top tank used through the early 1000s and the later tank with extra capacity. They are interchangeable. The trucks tanks are basically the same except for the direction of the fill tube. There is also a new larger capacity tank available from time to time but prevents any spare tire.

If you end up considering a new tank beware the larger, in believe it is 9.5 gal., takes considerable modifications to the boot/trunk area to get it to fit. I bought one and found that the opening in the floor must be enlarged and the support for the wooden luggage shelf must be removed to get the tank then re-welded and painted. Wish I had done more homework before I purchased it but I am committed now so it will be off to the body shop that installed my floors last year. The larger tank may be cheaper but you will pay more in the end.
