Nautica diesel tanks

Does any one have an idea of the shelf life or lifespan of a Nautica flexible diesel fuel tank? The one I have is now 15 years old and although it still looks good, I wonder how much more life it has.

Re: Nautica diesel tanks

Is it foam filled? I believe those foam blocks have a short life maybe 10 years

No foam involved. This is a heavy weight bladder tank..looks like a big black garbage bag...
