Some stuff! That foam may look like a god idea until you find out that it will absorb water and fuel after a while, that is why you see a lot of gas boats using pool noodles. Even those have to be sealed by heating the ends once they're cut.
Is that fuel tank adapted for gas use? The stopper needs to be changed as the one for nitro boats doesn't like gas for some reason.

Most gassers are using IV bags vs fuel tanks as you have. Reasoning is that the IV bag will not contain air while the hard style tanks will allow air to enter the fuel flow system - causing the motor to be erratic while running.
