2008 Ford Focus bigger tank?

Does any one know if the 2008 Ford Focus's 13.5 gallon gas tank can be replaced with bigger gas tank? like a 16 gallon tank.

Not really a lot of room underneath the car to put a bigger tank. I'm sure you could put a fuel cell in the trunk if you want a bigger tank.

FYI, fuel tanks are now considered part of the emission equipment, anything you change will most likely be illegal.
