Can a fuel cell be slightly tilted?

Random questions:

 

- If I were to get a cell with the pickup on the right side, could we mount the tank with a slight tilt of an inch or so to the right and tipped back so that the fuel pools in the right rear?

- So if the factory tank is in front of the rear wheels, do you have to install the cell in that location, or can you install it in the trunk? It would seem like a harder install if you had to keep it in the same location. If the cell is right behind the main roll bar how would you build a fire wall between the driver and it. Would firewall metal count toward the square foot material point cost. etc...

What kind of cell do you have?  If you have one with the big 6"x10" fill plate, you have plenty of room to get into the cell and move the pickup around or install ones in each corner.
