There are/were RV-12s modified with wing tanks a few years ago, basically capped pipes inserted in the wing rib lightening holes and quick disconnect fittings to retain the removable feature. If I recall correctly, there was a small header tank in the baggage area that the wing tanks fed. Van's provided some commentary on the idea.

Adding a couple of small Aux tanks with QDs to the inboard sections of the wing may be a more feasible idea than a wing root to tip length replacement tanks.
