Safari-Equip side tank

Have been running a safari-equip rear art 30L tank for about 3 yrs now and have had no issue. I have really enjoyed the extended range. My issue as of today doing my weekly inspection is a disfiguration of the tank. It is around the fill and on the back side. My question is...has anyone using this tank noticed such? I am using this tank in my NAS 90 and have not changed over to diesel so am using the great fuel we have all grown use to(with 10% alcohol). Bunch of crap!! I bought this direct from the UK long before RN was selling. I have looked on the net for comments, but nothing...so I've come back to the best source.
One final point is that the tank has not been hit or is any bind.

I've run one for a long time ... And Jimmy has one too. I never had any issue ... Even with clearance running chains got minor scuffs.

Can you post pic of your concern?

I'll do that when I get back in town on Thursday. Sure seemed odd to me to have any issue.

Are using saying that it looks warped on the sides? Mine has been like that as long as I have had it.

Well I got back and spent some time looking at it close. I have to honestly say I have a little egg on my face. When I installed years ago I put "dynamat" like product on the back side in some small way to keep heat off the tank. I guess I forgot about that part. Anyway the alarm went off in my head when I saw what appeared to be the tank sagging on the back side. Poor light, angle of view. Anyway the tank itself is fine and I was premature at asking for help/advice. Good to know that the tank is all well. I do think these are a great addition to any 90. Thanks again to all of you that did chime in. Next on my build list its to build a one piece skid plate to avoid the gap and joints of the add-on one.
