The fuel tank looks like it sticks out farther than normal on the one side.

Seems to me that the tank sticks out the same amount on both sides; it's just that there are no air reservoirs between the tank and the running board on one side, and in this pic the sun is shining directtly on the tank, so it looks like the tank projects more.

Always wonderd why we dont have kick plates at the bottom of the handrails down the sides of the units here in the states.

Could it be to prevent frozen water or snow in the walkway?

The SD70/45ACe have the same size of an SD80ACe, with a three radiator fans and a bigger fuel tank.
