    frost do an excellent petrol tank sealer and hole finder fixer kinda product.

    used it a couple of times and it does exactly what it says on the tin, you tip in the whole can swirl the tank around and it finds any leaks or holes and fills them up!

    most stuff frost do is pretty good

    If it has holed through it may well be crudded to the eyeballs which later may create running issues ? It could be cheaper long term just to have a new tank made to fit ?

    Howdy Kev,

    Still holds fuel OK just sounded full of crud when removed on the weekend so just thinking it will be worth while restoring the inside for long term use. What do you normally use?

    Cheers

    Steve

    Remove the tank, strap it to the front of a cement mixer, with a couple of handfuls of nuts and bolts inside, tape up any sender holes and pipes holes, and let it run for an hour.
    Then get all the crud out and seal it.

    What he said Steve We used to steam repeatedly and then cut a section and clean by hand . Check the tank holds fluid ALL the way to the top though, often the top half can get pinholed where it never gets filled to the top and moisture continues to rot.
