I'm having a hard time figuring out how this tank got bent so bad. The heater lines and the AC lines are crushed too. No evidence of "off roading" on the underside of the car other than the tank and lines? If cars could talk!

I wonder if someone put a floor jack under it? I had a parts car that looked like someone did the same damage to the bottom of the trunk.

The evidence of off roading would wash away, but the dents wouldnt.

Put it back in the car and hook it up to your air compressor to get it back into shape. You might think i'm joking....

When I loaded and unloaded my Formula on the transporter it bottomed out on the tank too. I caught it in time and put wooden blocks on the ramps so there wasn’t any damage, just scuff marks. How are your floor pans?

That damage is from running over an animal. Probably a mangled deer.

I have a tank out back that looks like that. PO has a long dirt road leading to his parents house.
He didn't slow down for anything
