Search around. There are other posts on this. Something about a vent getting plugged or clogged with ice or something like that. Causes pressure to build up and make the tank explode.

I used an aluminum pre-2002 sportsman oil tank.
It was some work to clean up and refinish but it fits and it's not going to explode because it's cold.
