Good questions.

You are correct on the pump. I do two things currently, I have a mark on the main gauge that I trigger the pump on and another when I know the tank is empty. I also time it when I have the appropriate watch on.

But for this reason, I'm putting in a second fuel gauge and sender in the tank whenever I get around to it. The gauge is already in, I just need to drop that tank.

As far as bashing it, it is a concern. The bottom of the tank is pretty thick (it is baffled), I've yet to put a dent in it in two years. The important piece is the design of being above the frame rail with the slider there as well. It's not fool proof to your point.
