Sealing of fuel tanks.

Post by RAB on Sat Dec 31 2016, 18:12

Hi all,

What do you use for sealing a fuel tank? I've a tank with pin prick holes in it and I just want to seal it without welding it up.

I've used Petropatch putty or the liquid version a couple of times and found it to be quite successful

Hi Rab, have used POR 15 fuel tank sealer on quite a few tanks you can get as a kit, just need to follow the instructions to the letter.

FROST do a good kit for motorbikes that usually does a few stationary engine tanks. Preparation is key with this stuff and getting the tank absolutely dry after rinsing is a must. Cheers Dave

Hi Paul,
I have used Petropatch - a kind of putty stuff - very successfully.I have also soldered small holes with success.As with all this preparation is key ie making sure that the surfaces are clean and grease/oil free.
All the best,
Kev.
