I have two 93 gallon RDS aluminum fuel tanks built July 1988. They are not leaking or anything , just wondering what the lifespan of these tanks are ,and what $ I would be looking at to replace ? The boat has been in freshwater since the year 2000.
Thanks

Depends where you are putting them. If it is a spot that is easy to get to and keep an eye on, use them. If it is under a deck, glassed in and a pita to replace, consider new over the hassle of replacing them later.
