We weld some two stubs on each side of the rear fuselage, which the tank will snug up and into. The tank is then secured with lightweight stainless steel straps, with a small amount of rubber tubing acting as a chafe strip on each stud. Hopefully all of this is clear by looking at the following pictures:

It all works well and is very strong. Three stainless steel straps, chafe bushings, and steel studs provide a lightweight fuel tank mount.
