They aren't really clear to start with. If you have seen the large plastic cans that the local stock car guys use, that's the same material. Affecting gas, I don't know. I can't see it affecting gas. On my '01 MXZ there are marks on the tank that are identical to ones on the racer. I would assume the plastic is the same material except the production ones are black.
the tests I saw was in circle track magazine,testing was done by smokey yunick using unical 110(known to most as sunoco race gas 110 octane) and in the article it stated that after one hour in direct sunight the octane had begun to lower as well as the additives package starting to separate from the fuel.this fuel is more like the gas we buy for our cars and can be mixed with pump gas,than some race fuels on the market.so it leads me to one question performancex and others to ponder, what amout of time is to much?

Hmmm, that give's me a good idea, a little bit of sunscreen lotion on the tank should doo the job
