Gas tank/ fuel cell options and 5.0 swap fuelpump?

I'm going to be swapping a '91 t-bird 5.0 into my dj project and i get how to do most of the swap but one part i'm still stumped about is the fuel pump and what to put my gas in. I hope to use a fuel cell of some kind (i'm chopping the back of the tub off kinda like green machine's set up). I've heard of people using kegs a fuel cells, how much do they hold? How do you set them up? What did you do for a sending unit? What did you use for a valve to protect from leakage during a roll over? Would it be in my best interest to buy a fuel cell from some where like jegs? A 20 gallon cell is $210 with gm sending unit. What have people done that have swapped in 5.0's for fuel pumps? Can you give me ideas or part numbers? The fuel pump set up here http://www.bc4x4.com/tech/waterman/misc.cfm doesn't look like it would be of much use for my set up. Help me, i havn't even started the swap and i'm a little confused.

I have a 15 gal set up for sale that has a tip-out and cut off valve plus a bunch of fittings. http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...threadid=95265 if you do order from somewhere make sure you price what all fittings you're going to need. Those things add up fast. Let me know if you're interested in my set up [email protected]
