Smaller Fuel Tank

hey guys. i've got a dual fuel XF sedan. the gas tank is behind the back rest of the back seat and the petrol tank is under the floor of the boot. i've got a dual exhaust setup happening and at the moment and i have both pipes exiting on the right hand side. i want to have one pipe on each side which means the petrol tank has to be cut (it extends too far to the left). i need a half width petrol tank so i can still hold some petrol for emergencies (im a stinge thus the gas ).

does anyone know of any cars that have a tank that is half the width of an XF tank. the tank is plastic too so i can really do much to cut it. if i cant find another tank i might just ditch the petrol setup all together and go straight gas.

Thats easily the best thing you could do. If you get your car tuned for straight gas it will run better. After you bail the petrol tank it'll be lighter and you would be saving yourself a lot of trouble rooting around looking for a smaller petrol tank.
