Does anyone know, for sure, what kind of gas tank is on the 939 SS? Is it the dreaded plastic or finally did Ducati learn their lesson and put a steel tank with this? Having experienced a Duc with a plastic tank, this would be game over if they're still using plastic tanks. I'm not going to deal with that again.

Its steel, and Ducati offer a magnetic tank bag. 16 litres capacity, the warning light comes on when two bars are showing. Which is just over one imperial gallon or 4 litres.

Nah, Ducati liked replacing so many plastic gas tanks that they decided to keep on doing it. It is their way of keeping in touch with their customers. >:)
I think perhaps the dreaded ethanol may have had something to do with some of the failures. Particularly on old bikes.
I notice warnings in the manuals about exceeding 10%. Yet it is possible a 15% mix may occur, I hope not.
