I'm not sure if Dodge Viper fuel tank placed over the differential is actually an improvement.

Maybe Corvette C6 twin fuel tanks just before the rear wheels is the way to go?
Although you're literally sitting on the fuel tank.
Just to be clear, front and front mid are basically the same thing. With that said, the Viper location is also used by the Honda S2000, the Miata (all generations), and the Pontiac Solstice. The Corvette's twin tank solution is more expensive but can sit lower in the car and closer to the center of the car.
