I moved from Indiana to Maryland earlier this year, and now I am trying to get my car to pass Maryland's safety inspection. Low and behold they tell me my gas tank is leaking and I responded only if you punched the hole in it! Well it actually was leaking more like seeping but right near the straps was pretty rusty.

I ordered a new 16gal gas tank and new straps but my question is this. Both the straps and the tank are metal. Shouldnt there be some type of foam or something that prevents a metal to metal contact? My Nissan Z car had foam in between the straps and the tank so I am just wondering.

Thanks!
