I am not sure. but think G series 911 had an 80 litre (17.5 gallon) tank which was plastic. The exit and return unions were in the centre rear of the tank where the pipes would go directly into the "transmission" tunnel inside the car, The fuel pump was fitted on the rear suspension torsion bar tube and was of the long-suck-short-blow type supplying the MFI fuel pump.
There was a difference between RHD and LHD cars as the UK at that time did not like plastic tanks so UK cars had a steel tank with room for a space saver spare wheel.

Hi Robin, the picture is of the one in the car. 85ltr, pipes in the 2 rear Corners and a large drain plug. I’m not sure but I think this is an 80’s tank (new).
I was told the original would be steel, 62 ltr, with all pipes in the centre rear.
