I was looking at doing that but I can't seem to find one that is shallow enough. It would probably need to be about 6" high excluding the sump in order to have adequate clearance. Actually, ATL makes an 8 gallon "well cell" like pictured above that's only 6" high but probably won't be a good fit under the vehicle.

Yeah, if you're to the point that you need a fuel cell for your power needs, you shouldn't care about using your hatch. Not to mention, it's safer in there, and easier to get to.

Not sure if it's safer in the hatch in the case of an accident. Stock location seems to be the safest place.

how deep, wide and long is the stock fuel tank? I am pretty sure there is a way you could get one made to the specs. Why couldn't you? I would rather keep it where the original fuel tank is. I don't think it matters if u are at the certain power levels. I do not see alot of drag cars with the fuel cell in the trunk. maybe i'm wrong. that is a place i do not want mine!

I was trying to find out the dimensions but couldn't get an answer. I will probably be dropping my tank this weekend so I will take some measurements.

Well, Tom has done it on cars he owns and has done it to others' cars. Would he do it if it was extremely unsafe? No, because things that aren't safe...like having a fuel pump sitting lower than your tank at the rear-most part of your car, is unsafe and he told one guy to fix it. Fitting it in the stock location would also be a hassle to run a filler neck to. It's possible, just more involved.
