Fuel tank

I am about to remove the fuel tank from my 2000 1.7 because I will be welding very close to that area, and I’m not yet ready for my celestial wings!
The tank will be inspected before refitting, and I’m not expecting any problems with it, but I wondered if it was the same as a Fiesta tank if it did need replacing?

According to this you can fit a Fiesta one providing it's for the right year. There's apparently some differences with the breather pipe but it isn't a show stopper.

The vast majority of the aftermarket tanks don’t have the same shape swirl pot inside, and the sender unit gets caught so be very careful that what you buy will work.
