One little question . Why do you want to have an additional tank?
You own a SM with 600 l of fuel.
Why do you think this is not enough.
Do you consider a World tour, even then with your SM and maybe 3 jerries you are on the save side !

I would be comfortable with a roto-molded tank from a company that makes tanks for fuel. The gasoline tanks in my helicopter are made this way and tested to withstand very high impact. I would not be satisfied with a tank welded from sheet. One of the holding tanks on Harmonie was replaced with a roto-molded tank with the fittings welded in. This has worked well in that application for over ten years. I do not have experience with this approach for fuel, however I suspect it would be satisfactory as some outboard gasoline containers are made this way.
