It looks like there is a guy on barnstormers  making wing tanks for kitfoxes, He says they are ethanol resistant, I would think they are fiberglass.  I'm just Glad to see people still building parts for us little guys yet.  Just search Kitfox they will show up.

If you have tanks now, it is just a matter of opening up the top fabric between the rib and the tanks, cutting the center ribcap if there is one, removing the old tank fittings, removing the tanks, putting a squiggle of GE Silicone II on the ends of the new tanks, dropping them into place, replacing the fuel outlet fittings, and recovering.  Don't forget to put the drain in the bottom.   Hope I didn't forget something?   Oh yes,  some Kitfoxes have braces glued between the end of the tank and root rib - you need to cut them off before removing tank.  I don't think Avids have a root rib.  EDMO
