Gas Tank Sealer Kit For Cars

    Gas Tank Sealer Kit For Cars

    Product Review (submitted on May 13, 2012):

    I bought this kit for my ’66 MGB. This spring when I fired it up after the winter hibernation I discovered that the gas was contaminated and contained various particles. I suspect that the great ethanol enhanced gas we have to use here in Maryland helped contribute to the problem. I pulled the tank and discovered quite a bit of rust and other contaminants. The tank (a replacement )was not that old so I thought the tank sealing kit would be the way to help correct the problem. I obtained the kit and purchased the recommend extras (acetone and muric acid) locally. The instructions were clear and I had no problem with the installation. Instead of using a flow of air from an air compressor to flush the fumes from the tank as suggested, I used my wife’s hair dryer (don’t tell her!) on the cool air setting to flush the fumes with the tank ourside in fresh air.. The nozzle of the hair dryer fit perfectly in the gas gauge sender opening. I let this run for several hours over the course of two days and it worked just fine. Based on my experience and other heard stories about the effect of the ethanol enhanced gasoline, I recommend that one consider using this kit on either old or new metal gas tanks to help prevent potential tank damage from the ethanol enhanced gas.
