AWG #8 is 0.128" (3.25mm) which is too small to use as a tank gauge. The closest wire guage is 7 at 0.144" (3.66mm), but wires typically are made in even gauges. I'm guessing manufacturers don't really want to bother with tiny increments.

If you wanted to use electrical wire, you'd have to use solid core.
