    About Gas Tank Sealer Kits - Eastwood Gas Tank Sealer

    Motorcycle Kit is for restoring one metal tank up to 5 gallons. Car Kit is for restoring one metal tank up to 20 gallons.

    A clean supply of fuel is critical to the performance of any vehicle. Hard starting, stumbling under load, and sluggish response may be symptoms of a car's dirty fuel system. The best way to ensure that the fuel is clean is to be certain that the fuel tank is free of rust. See the "FAQs" tab for additional "how to seal a gas tank" information.

    Not for use in tanks containing Nitro Methane or Aniline oils.

    FAQs

    (Q) How do I use this kit?
    (A) First you'll use the Metal Wash to remove any fuel varnish in the tank, then use muriatic acid (diluted 20:1; available at your local hardware store) to etch into the metal and rust. Rinse with water, then pour Fast Etch inside to coat all surfaces. Pour out the excess Fast Etch, then pour in Acetone (available from your local hardware store) to coat interior. After pouring excess Acetone out, pour in Gas Tank Sealer to coat all surfaces. Finally, drain-off excess and allow to dry. (Additional sealer can be applied if the coating hasn't been exposed to fuel.)

    (Q) Does it matter what kind of fuel will be used in the tank?
    (A) The sealer resists fuel additives and is compatible with both gas and diesel fuels. Your newly reconditioned tank will resist rust and corrosion build-up, ensuring years of reliable service.

    (Q) What if I have to remove old sealer?
    (A) 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.

    (Q) Does this kit work on an aluminum or fiberglass tank?
    (A) Omit the Muriatic Acid step if using this kit in an aluminum tank. If you wish to use this kit in a fiberglass tank, test for compatibility by exposing an inconspicuous area to Acetone to test for softening. If no excessive softening occurs, follow label instructions, but omit Muriatic Acid and Rust Remover steps.


    Safety/Instructions

    Work in a well-ventilated area. Leave at least one opening uncapped when not actually tumbling the tank.

    I used to farm out gas tanks to a local shop but when once came back cautining me NOT to use ethanol fuel on the new coating, I switched to the Eastwood sealer kit. Instructions were clear and procedure was simple. Results have been excellent.

    Followed the directions, each and every step. Let it set almost a month before putting it in service. After 3000 miles noticed it plunging up filter coming lose all over. Will not stay on tank. Will come loose plug things up. Good price if it worked. Find a different fix save your money!!

    I purchase the Gas tank sealer kits 10165Z Brand: Eastwood to line the tank on a vintage motorcycle tank. I followed the instruction to the letter to avoid any issues. I left the tank cure for more than five days before putting any fuel into the tank. I ran a tank of gas through the tank and when I opened the cap to refill the tank I saw the lining coming loose from the right side of the tank. I have contacted tech services, but they haven't gotten back with me at this time. I should have read the other reviews to see that there has been similar problems from other customers and stayed away from this product. I am now stuck with a worse situation than I started with over a month ago. A little help from the tech people could go a long way. I have rated this product very poor because at any price this is a failure and is going to cost more time and money to fix.

    Eastwood simply doesn't supply enough product to treat a car tank. Similar products for motorcycle tanks worked pretty good for me, but they came with just as much stuff as this car tank kit (except they doubled the liner). With the amount of rust left in the tank I can't apply the liner... anyone want to buy two bottles of liner? The bigger issue is EW doesn't respond to voice, email or website inquiries. Maybe they should change the tag line to Do The Job Half Right.
    Does not seal small leaks (Posted on 1/18/13)

    I am a ASE Master Auto and Master Heavy Truck Technician and my day job includes writing training and workshop manuals for an OEM. So, like most people who buy from Eastwood, I understand the importance of following the directions. I bought the kit to remedy a small leak on the bottom of the gas tank on my 48 Case tractor. The previous owner had silver soldered the tank in an attempt to repar a huge leak. It worked for the most part, but a small leak remained - it would empty the tank in 2-3 weeks. I used the kit and followed the instructions. All results I achieved during the process matched the instructions except the white coating appears thin and is streaked. Before reinstalling the tank, I "leak tested" the tank using a shop-vac blower and soapy water. As you can see, the leak remains. I got back on this site to order more sealer to add another coat, but after reading the reviews I think I will get a can of Acetone, melt the solder and repaint the tank. What a waste of my holiday vacation.

    I purchased this KIT because it also cleaned the tank as well as sealed it.When it arrived there was a note THAT YOU WOULD ALSO NEED 3 OUNCES OF MURIATIC ACID. IT STATED THAT YOU CAN BUY IT AT ANY HARDWARE STORE...WELL IT COMES IN 1 GALLON CONTAINERS AND IS NOT CHEAP!!!\
    IF IT IS A KIT WHY NOT PUT THIS LITTLE BIT IN THE KIT???????

    time will tell if it adheres well. First coat was kinda spotty, awkward 50 gal slip tank. I'd recommend saving the drained epoxy in a sealed container and let first coat cure over night. Then pour the epoxy back in and give it a second coat. My second coat looked very good.
