ezcruiser Posted July 24, 2009 Report Share Posted July 24, 2009 Okay, the time has come for me to clean and seal a couple of my old tanks. I've done a lot of reading and it seems there are 3 ways to accomplish this: 1. Take to a Radiator shop and have them tank it, boil it and coat it. (I have called most around here but no one will touch a gas tank) 2. DIY but piece together all your chemicals (Basically: muriatic acid, phosphoric acid, acetone, tank sealer/epoxy) 3. DIY but buy a complete kit. The complete kits I have found are as follows: POR-15 $73.25 + Shipping "...high-tech sealer impervious to all fuels, including the new Stage II fuels which have a high alcohol content. It has superior strength and fuel resistance, and does not contain Methyl Ethyl Ketone..." KREEM $51.75 + Shipping "...withstand most octane boosters. Feel confident using gasohol in your tank with Kreem Fuel Tank Liner as methyl or ethyl alcohol have no effect on the coating." Eastwood $49.99 + Shipping Resists fuel additives, mentions nothing about alcohol and ethanol. Bill Hirsch Auto $42 + Shipping Alcohol and ethanol resistant. I'm not sure at the moment which route I'm going to take but I have a feeling I'm going to buy a kit and do it myself. Anyone have any recommendations, ideas or comments? Here are some sites that I have checked out, (also you can click the above pictures to visit a website selling the product): HybridZ - Muric Acid Proceedure The Bus Depot -DIY Fuel Tank Restoration Finishing.com -Muriatic Acid for Fuel tank cleaning?
