You don't really need the neoprene washer on the bottom side of tank. If you have room to double nut it, use a brass washer and nut on the bottom. The instructions that came with the bolts said to put a metal washer inside the tank between the bolt head and rubber washer as your leftmost diagram shows and a hex nut on the underside of the tank without either a rubber or metal washer. I understand your reasoning for not using the metal washer and letting the underside of the bolt head seal to the rubber washer so what is the manufacturer's reasoning? Did they buy extra metal washer that they want to sell?

Do NOT put the metal washers inside of the tank, water will leak between the bolt head and the washer. Ask me how I know. If you bring them down together, you can usually get them pretty tight. Push down on the side of the tank as you tighten that side a little bit, then do the same to the other side, lather, rinse, repeat. Occasionally I have to use soft plastic shims to get the tank to stop rocking.
