Default Who makes a stainless steel fuel surge tank?

With E85 becoming more popular, I'm surprised there hasn't been any production of stainless steel surge tanks. Unless I'm not looking hard enough or just have to have one custom made. I know Kelly Murphy has made some but his been mia here on Nasioc.

I do not know of any manufacturer,after a lot of searching I just made my own.
Very simple design, just a 3" thinwall pipe cut in half lengthwise and with some stainless sheet welded between them.
For something simple like that I would just buy the necessary fittings , and go to a local engineering firm (one that makes machines for the food industry for example).
They usually are cheaper then dedicated motorsport fabricators,and can do something like this between their regular work (and with cash in hand, they will probably do so)

I'm not about to just make one because your design may differ from mine, however, if you'd like to PM me your design or one you'd like me to rip off, I'll make you one out of 316 stainless. I work in the dairy industry...not a problem.

Ive made 2-3 of them, but now I just do aluminum ones and get them hard anodized. Saves you the weight of stainless.

Do they include lube when you purchase that swirl pot for that price?
