How about using the heat tape on the fuel line instead of heating the whole tank? that way the fuel going to the fuel pump is heated quickly, the fuel returned to the tank is also warm but you are not trying to heat 70 pounds of fuel all at once, same idea at the heat exchanger that uses warm engine coolant to heat the fuel supply line by having a coolant line surrounding the fuel line that is running back to the fuel tank, something like that could also be part of an engine block heater with a small preheat pump for the fuel line.
