Need a small tank or container.  This might be a solution for you.  In this image is a small stainless steel tank, about 20 x 7 inches.  It is actually hemispherical on both ends, but has a rim attached on the bottom to stand on, which could be removed.  Capacity, roughly 3 gallons.  Where do you find it?  Get over to your local fire extinguisher service center.  Abundantly available in various sizes, with aluminium construction being the most common.  Fire extinguishers have a life expectancy after which they must be tested.  The test costs more than the extinguisher, so out they go as scrap.  Which means, they are available to you for cheap or better still free..
I’m thinking one might make a nice fuel tank for the engine test stand.
Often used in Bucket T’s, and pickups, there is always the time proven beer keg.  Available in larger sizes more appropriate as a fuel tank, and easily mounted in a fashion like a moon tank.
These keg dimensions will help you determine what size will work best for you..

 These dimensions and weights may vary slightly as result of differences between keg manufacturers.
