Thanks John, I am trying to get my Bensen to be a true ultra light. I am sure it will make weight with the 8 gallon tank, but that is not a ultralight. I could trade or buy, anyone need a 8 gallon?

Vent your bigger seat tank at the 5 gallon point, perfectly legal. In an emergency, you can rotate the fuel elbow up and put the overflow tube up the mast. You will have full tank capacity for the emergency and possibly, the FAA to reason with.

Brock tank was closer to 6 than 5 gallons anyway. FAA realizes you need an expansion space above the fuel.

I have an older Brock tank that I'd trade for the regular Calumet seat tank. Anyone you know going to Mentone?

Thank You, do you know if that fits the Brock seat frame, or should I get the hardware kit also?
Thanks again
