  • "This is just a quick note to thank you for that fantastic fuel tank repair kit.
    It arrived the very next day after I placed the online order.
    I have never removed, let alone repaired a fuel tank before, but following the straight forward instructions I think the job has been a success.
    The instructions say to leave the tank for four days to allow the sealant to dry thoroughly, but it has been so cold that I decided to leave at a few more days before refilling the tank with petrol.
    In the meantime, I am blowing fresh air into the tank occasionally with my compressor and a leftover length of fuel line fed down the filler spout to assist the drying process."
  • 1964 corvair gas tank repair
    I have had good luck with this product on my Corvair gas tank. The key IS the prep, take your time and follow the instructions. I did the gas tank while I was doing other things so I was not in a hurry for the chemicals to soak/work/dry. The tank was really rusty so I did the prep twice. To help the tank dry good, I put a blower fan aimed at the fuel opening and blew air into the tank for several hours and then set in the sun for a couple days. Very important to follow the instructions and make sure its all dry before the final coat. I did this 4 years ago and still no problems.
  • One of the best sealers if you do it correctly
    On of the best sealers that I have used for gas tanks in 30 years. Prep is VERY particular and you MUST keep everything clean and DRY after the steps. I have never had a kit go bad once in the cleaned tank and cured properly. The process is very laborious and you need to be patient but the rewards are excellent. Be certain to have a large sink accessible, several flashlights (LEDs are great) warm clean distilled water to rinse, a hair dryer, 4 to 5 pair of clean nitrile gloves, isopropyl alcohol or acetone, and lots of clean rags/paper towels. Keep everything spotless while you are doing this. If you have an external paint job protect it with adhesive film. Rinse the tank properly and take your time in the process. Dilute properly and don't rush the job. If you contaminate the tank with grease from hands, dirty towels or water....it will not adhere. Likewise you need to completely dry the tank with a hair drier and this may take 30+ minutes of purging to get it completely dry and you may have to let it sit overnight before you do POR which is what I did. Change gloves frequently....dirty gloves still protect your hands but NOT the surfaces that the POR is going to bond too!! Be CLEAN!!! The entire tank needs to be rotated while drying to ensure all the water comes out and evaporates. I like to rinse my tank with distilled water from the store in lieu of tap water to ensure no deposits from well or tap water remain after (calcium, manganese, iron, etc.). You can also use 70% or 90% rubbing alcohol or acetone splashed in after the distilled water rinse to help dry out the tank. Alcohol will not bother the paint but acetone may - so figure out what is best for your situation. Just remember to think before you blow dry....those solvents are flammable!! Give them time to evaporate out of the tank prior to heating it and keep it ventilated by doing it outside. The entire tank should be nice and warm and everything dry. Keep the tank moving and inspect the inside with a flashlight every 5 minutes or so. Pay attention to the seams of the tank....water collects there and is very hard to get out. If water comes out during coating IT WILL BLISTER Likewise, when you etch and remove any rust....if there is still rust on the tank...IT WILL BLISTER!! Either will not allow the POR to adhere properly. Buy extra degreaser and metal etch if you need to. I had a gallon and a quart in the 2 gallon tank to etch it and rotated it every 15 minutes Once the tank is dry warm the seams specifically with the hair dryer. Be patient and heat it well....and then do it again for good measure. My slightly rusty 250 Kawa tank took nearly 8 hours with degreasing, rinsing, etching and heating to dry it out. That did not include the over night dry prior to POR being applied. Again...BE PATIENT and plan for a whole day +. Once you are completely dry then add the POR and slowly rotate the tank to evenly and completely coat the entire inside of the tank. I taped off the areas that will take a gasket during reassembly to ensure there was a clean metal surface. Chase the threads when done also. That said once it hardened it was beautiful and is much more resistant to additives and ethanol than the "white" coating kits. Tanks look beautiful inside and my motorcycle shop asked what brand my tank sealer was...and they started ordering and using this on their tanks. It is a good product but will take some patience....and extra etch and degreaser to ensure it is cleaned and etched properly.
  • Put in the work, get Great Results!
    My fuel tank restore was about a 10 day process. I followed the richard atwell VW DIY Fuel Tank Restoration process almost exactly as he explains it. (ratwell.com) There were a few slight variations on the instructions sent with kit, so when in doubt I followed the POR instructions first. You cannot avoid hard work. Cleaning is number one key. Use muriatic acid and water at first for several days before using marine clean. Once proper cleaning process was done, the Marine Clean, Metal Ready, and Sealer went on in one day, in about a 10 hr process. Lot's of work. Great results. Little tip: it's important to get to know the inside of the tank. If you have a baffle or bowl make sure you angle your initial pour of sealer into that tough to get area, while there is still plenty of excess sealer. I would have liked 50% more sealer and I only had a 13 Imperial Gal fuel tank. My tank did not have holes, only an overall rust and sludge from 40+ years. Very happy with the results, might try not working quite so hard next time.
  • Awesome product!
    Used it on my 55 oldsmobile gas tank and it sealed all the flaking in the tank. Just follow instructions and cure time and you won't be disappointed..
