I have just received my W29 Panga shell. I am trying to figure out the best place to put my fuel tank. I have it midships on my 26 , but my friend has his in the stern ( factory placed ) by imemsa . He gets better fuel economy that i do but i am heavier and have more wind drag. I am wondering how much of his economy ,If any , is because his motor isnt working as hard to lift the bow due to the weight being forward.

I say move it forward as much as possilbe.  These boats ride much better with the nose down in the waves.

Helms deep, did you mean to say stern?  The imemsas I have seen (here in the states) have had the fuel tank in the bow.

yes , stern . From the Imemsa factory built under the stern casting deck. He has no external gas cap. Lifts one of the two stern hatches and his cap is mounted on the plastic tank.
