If your going with a gas engine the tank location doesn't mater, they are pumpers. I usually install the tank so it is centered to the CG with any of my pumped engines. The DLE 30 may be a bit of over kill on this size plane?? Not a big deal I have used it on 90 to 120 ARFs without problems. No reason to be making mods for the tank location, wherever it will fit and you can put it at most any angle you like.
