building a gas tank?!

Go figure the Heep has a leak in the fuel tank, Instead of going original I am looking at a 30gal barrel, welding the lid on it and welding a fill tube to it. With the scrambler, I have the room in the bed, also it elevates the tank from under the frame and any low hazards...Also it would be almost free! I know that I will need to add a vent to it, But am I missing aything else? I also know that I wnt have a sending unit for the gauge. factroy tank will run me near $120 + any misc fuel lines/tubes. not to mention that it is still under the jeep. The barrel I am looking at are the ones gear oil come in for semi trucks. they look like small skinny 5gal drums.
