Photo Odd Gas Tank

Never seen a tank like this, obviously it mounts flat against something, engine? tractor? Its 9-1/2" diameter.

That style of tank was used on lot of early racing Go Karts. It was mounted to the seat back in front of the engine.

Early style fuel tank for use on a racing Go Kart. It was mounted on the seat back in front of the engines. Usually held about 1/2 gallon or so.
