Instead of being able to spend my time ecomodding the car to try to defend my title, I'll be lucky if it will be mechanically sound enough to even make it to Montreal [and back hopefully].

Just in case you can't find one, Summit sells plastic fuel cells for race cars for about $100, and you can get a sending unit for them as well.
