I could try and make a picture of the seal if interested? Indeed the aluminium is a little soft, so one has to be careful when tightening the locking ring.

I have tried the white locking ring provided with the tank and it leaks! so do not use! I followed up Gary's advice and went for a 2nd rubber seal. I haven't used any sealant, installed the tank, filled her up to the top and it stays dry.

I have been driving the car with the new tank and no issues at all.

The alu tank is indeed an exact copy of the original except for the vent tubes, but that is not a problem at all. On my tank all the welds look good.

Only issue is the white locking ring and therefore making it seal well.

Good luck
