I’m 160 lbs and fly solo a lot and sometimes with little people and could put it a good deal of weight.
Consider a Sling 2, instead. 39.6 gallons of fuel onboard, in the wings.
The RV-12 has removable wings... fuel tanks would defeat that, plus the spars were never engineered to handle the additional weight of added fuel. Another consideration would be how this affects the CG of the airplane.
