    A clean supply of fuel is critical to the performance of your vehicle - hard starting, stumbling under load, and sluggish response may be symptoms that your car's fuel system is dirty.

    Accessories

    Extra pints of Sealer are available individually as part #10087Z. Not for use in tanks containing Nitro Methane or Aniline oils.


    FAQ’s

    Additional sealer can be applied if the coating hasn't been exposed to fuel. Should the need arise to remove old sealer, pour in a gallon or more of acetone It may take up to 2 days for the acetone to completely dissolve the old sealer. If you wish to use this system on a fiberglass tank, test for compatibility by exposing an inconspicuous area to acetone to test for softening. If no exces- sive softening occurs follow label instructions but omit Muriatic Acid and Eastwood Rust Remover steps. Omit the Muriatic Acid step if using this system in an aluminum tank.

    This stuff is great, Coated my tank perfectly, follow the steps exactly and your tank will look brand new inside. Keep in mind when buying this product that you will need to buy muriatic acid, and acetone to treat the tank, and set aside a few hours to do it. The instructions call for the tank to be rotated in 5-10 min intervals on all sides, for allmost every step.

    Just finished cleaning and sealing my 31
    Desoto gas tank. The inside was full of varnish, fuel deposits and some rust which was getting in my fuel line. Your product cleaned up the inside like new and the sealant coated it like a fresh coat of white paint.
    Took about 5 hours start to finish. Well worth the price and effort vs. chasing down and buying a new tank .

    I am restoring a 1946 John Deere Mod. 'B' tractor. The fuel system was extremely corrupted starting with the gas tank. I took it off and followed the instructions on the "GAS TANK SEALER KIT". It took me about 7 hours but the results are fantastic. The completed job left the inside of the tank with a white coating that seemed as hard as ceramic and cleean as a whistle.

    I ordered the kit on a Friday afternoon and it was at my farm the next day. Super Service

    Kit worked great. Instructions were simple to follow. Only thing I would add is be sure to pour the muriatic acid solution out of your tank into at least a 3 gallon bucket because once you add the baking soda to it - the checmical reaction causes it to expand in volume. (much like a kids volcano science project). I poured mine into a smaller container and had overflow when I added the baking soda.
    Other than that, I had no problems and the tank came out great.
    Superb, long lasting product (Posted on 2/14/2010)

    15 Years ago, a new gas tank for a 1969 Barracuda was pretty expensive. I was restoring a basket case that had not run in years, and my gas tank was bad rusty on the inside, so I tried this kit. It was pretty easy to apply, and it worked great. Well, 15 years later my sending unit dies. I figure since I needed to pull the tank anyway, I might as well buy a new one - they are only $130 now. Once I pulled the tank and looked inside, I was shocked at what I saw. After 15 years, the epoxy lining was still 100% intact. I could have easily kept using the old tank, but I already had a new one. Wow! This stuff works great.
    Great product to save OEM tank. (Posted on 1/26/2010)

    Car: 1973 Triumph Spitfire 1500.

    I used this product to save my OEM gas tank after I welded some rust holes. Its easy to use and my only concerns were what to do with all the chemical/water rinses and what works best to seal the tank when sloshing. My tank is small, but I used the full kit as recommended. I found that nitrile gloves, zip ties and duct tape work well enough to seal the tank. You need acetone and a small amount of muriatic acid (I got it in the pool section of the local big-box home center), which boosts the cost slightly. I reserved a day to do the process but it did not take that long. They recommend using slow air pressure to evacuate the tank after you are done, I found that a small fan directed into the sender hole and out the fill hole worked great. I ran the fan for two days until all "odors" were gone. All-in-all it worked great. Make sure you do this before you paint the tank.

    Positives: Step-by-step process is well defined. Quality of final coating is great and smooth.

    Cons: nasty chemicals to play with, had to repeat acid slosh step three times to get the rust gone, maybe a stronger acid ratio should be recommended.

    Picture: Attached picture is post curing. note some acid and sealer marks on sender opening.
