Currently have a pan underneath the car to collect the fuel until it stops, hopefully right below the filler neck/tank connection point. Fuel gauge showed maybe 3/4 of a tank with the 10 gallons I added.

Any new information regarding availability of fuel cells for Gen 2 Vipers or am I stuck finding a used tank?
No, to date I have not found a fuel cell or replacement/aftermarket tank. Used tank is the best bet for a quick resolution. BTW, not a bad one. It's only a certain set of tanks that had the issue. A good used tank will last a long long time.

No chance here. No matter what I tried, the leak would return after a few fill ups.
