the engine is small enough that you could make it fit, but where will you put the fuel tank?

mounting the tank low like that may cause fuel draw issues.

Oh yeah, do you have any suggestions on where to put it? I dont really know were.
Maybe putting it on the back of the pod but vertical.

If you have already purchased the pod you might be stuck.
you would be much better off scratchbuilding a pod with a platform behind the engine for the tank Like this.
