Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely durable finish I used this on a 65 yr old tank and it did the trick. Followed the instructions to a "T" and it got rid of the flaking rust and sealed it with a nice finish

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time using this product Works well if you do the steps as outlined. Wish it came with 2 quarts of the metal etch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gift! I purchased this kit for a Christmas 2018 gift. My husband is working on his Grandfather's 55 Dodge Royale. The gas tank has been removed and once spring is here he will begin using the POR-15 Fuel Tank Repair Kit. I did copius research and read multiple reviews in deciding to purchase this product. Will have to remind him that when using this product the process cannot be hurried! Eastwood shipped the product quickly which was deeply appreciated and the reviews I have read were extemely informative. The only reason I have given this product four stars is because we won't be able to use it until spring as our workshop is not heated for winter weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plan a full day to do it right! The best advice i received before starting this project was to make sure to allow plenty of time to follow the instructions - which I did. The finished result looks fantastic, and even though I had no leaks in my 43 year old tank, I feel much better knowing the insides are like new.
Date published: 2018-07-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for restoring classic gas! I just st finished restoring a gas tank for a 1956 worthington tractor. It's odd enough there was no way of finding a replacement tank. Patched the larger holes then used this kit to seal the inside. Works as advertised as long as the instructions are followed to the letter! Great product!
Date published: 2015-06-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use Make sure you prep a nice area to work, and the job becomes easy. Used it to get rid of rust inside my tank and coat the rust that was left to "neutralize" it. So far, so good. Only time will tell.
Date published: 2015-05-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Used it on a 1957 Ford tractor fuel tank that had numerous leaks. Wanted to keep it original instead of putting in aftermarket. This stuff sealed with NO issues. Easy to apply when instructions are followed. Well worth the price.
Date published: 2014-06-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product I purchased this for a very rusty tank on a 1954 Chev. Used the products per the instruction sheet. I was disapointed that it did not remove all the rust build up. If you have a very rusty tank I would recommend using muriatic acid first until the rust is gone. At that point repair any holes in the tank. I braised mine. After the muriatic acid and a rinse of water there is no danger of an explosion. After that use the kit as instructed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would consider other alternatives This is a three step process. The first two steps are simple enough although you should have a plan on how to dispose of the excess fluids. The third step can get messy as you are placing the coating in the tank and then trying to splash it around and get everything coated. Make sure you wear latex gloves because it is difficult to get off of your hands. If it gets on you cloths, forget it. When you let the tank dry, make sure it is on a level floor. Definitely, do not let it dry upside down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not reccomend. Terrible product. Peeled up within a month. I followed their directions and even let it cure for two weeks. I even let the fuel tank coating cure for two weeks, indoors at a cintrolled controlled temperature. The coating messed peeled by the time i was headed to my second hay field.
Date published: 2021-07-29
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disaster Not sure what happened, but I went through all the stages and in the last week when I was painting the outside of my fuel tank I looked inside to notice that the coating from this kit had bubbled off the bottom of the inside of the tank and is cracked. Complete disaster as I don't know how to fix that and its a hard to find item for which there aren't replicas. Very disappointed.
