Did I mount the oil tank in the correct location? As you can see in the one picture the fuel and oil tanks are touching. The one mounting tab seems like it should mount tight to the tube but can't due to the interference between the 2 tanks. I put a spacer in it but it seems to be putting stress on the tab and it is still not pulled in tight. I guess I could keep cranking it tighter or put a thicker spacer in there. The tank is also touching the aluminum footwell bracket piece. You can kind of see that as well in the one pic. I'm thinking I must not have installed it correctly.
