Getting ready to install the Viking header tank on the Cruzer.  While in the "hell hole", it occurred to me that it MAY make a difference as to which side to install it.  The weight is what I'm considering (2.5 gallons plus the tank weight).  I weigh 220 and my wife is considerably smaller.  

If I'm flying with her, or if I'm solo, would it make sense to install it on the passenger side of the fuselage to help balance weight?  The videos all seem to show the installation behind the pilot.  Or is this a non-issue?

Thanks.

Access is perfect.  However not always needed.  This Video show the minimum amount of fittings that ever need access on the top of the tank.  Also, the tank is easy to remove as seen here.
