Default Can I add a fuel tank to my airplane

I was debating adding a 10-15 gallon fuel tank to my plane. However, I am not sure I can. Yes my airplane is experimental but it has an airworthiness certificate. My limits say that a minor change has no appreciable effects on w&b, structural strength, reliability, operational characteristics, or other characteristics affecting airworthiness. It goes on to say changes that arenít minor need FAA approval, and an airworthiness review and authorization.

Adding fuel might affect the reliability of the fuel system, and certainly would affect the operational characteristics. Therefore I think this isnít a minor change and requires FAA approval and an airworthiness review. Is this correct?
