If you have ever relined the tank because of rust, make sure that the tank liner used is ethanol-resistant-- some tank liners from several years ago were not and the amount of ethanol in today's fuels will cause deterioration of the liner.

This is all correct. Also watch your fuel lines with this ethanol crap. And it will increase the water buildup in your fuel tank.
