Replacing the Gas Tank in my 70. Looking at the 2020 OPGI Catalogue Page 100. For the 70 Tank Kit, there are two choices, w/o vents and w/return. Any insight on these options?

Existing tank attached.

The tank itself has no vents or return lines. The gas tank sending unit does. 

I agree with cny first Gen 71. If the original is usable, by all means use it. 

My 70 has an aftermarket tank in it. At the time the only tank made for the Monte was the 71-72 tank. It has a vent/return line nipple at both corners of the tank. I used rubber caps to block the vents. Needless to say, every year they have to be changed due to them rotting and leaking. Nothing rubber is made like it used to be.

What's wrong with that tank? Is it leaking somewhere or bottom damaged.  I'd rather have an OEM tank than a replacement.  Mine wasn't bad at all I cleaned it up and painted it looks like new.

Tank has a hole in it, or I would keep it in the car.
