You can get a new one at The Fiero Store, and I believe Rock Auto also sells them.

I don't think this is true.....I have not seen a new FUEL tank in decades. Can you post a link?

Sorry. I misread. I was thought you were asking about coolant overflow tanks.

Well I was hoping I just missed finding a source for them, I searched all over and couldn't find any new ones.

Anyone else have ideas????

Why do you want a NEW tank? Post an ad in the Mall and get an original from a parted-out Fiero....they are road tested!

They are just not common enough for anyone to make new. You may be able to find a NOS at a dealer... here is the part number: 10041455

You can drive the car w/o it. Just don't totally fill up main tank or worse, many tries to squeeze in extra quart or two after pump nozzle trips. Extra tank give safe place when main tank in full or over full then gas gets warm or hot. Is to save EVAP can from liquid fuel or spills.

If you can't find a replacement... I think you can fix leaks just solder, if needed solder in a patch or make a bracket and solder that. (I don't think is SS)
Use plenty compress air to ventilate the tank before you try solder.
Use lead base solder but avoid acid base flux.
