Replace with larger gas tank-20 to 32 g?

My Pearson 30, 20 gallon tank is good for about 100 miles.

Yes, the boat has sails, but increasing the size of the fuel tank could add a bit of cruising miles if necessary. The gas gauge could also be moved to a more accessible and convenient location than where it is now


Any suggestions on installation and removal would be very much appreciated. Im looking at a poly. belly tank 32 to about 40 gallons.

Gasoline or diesel? It makes one heck of a difference when it comes to tank/hose design.
