Hi guys,

I'm wondering if anyone on here has experience with fiberglass fuel tanks used for racing? I have one from AirTech and I'm not sure how to go about lining the tank for use. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

LOL, um, nevermind. Found my own answer.

Per the AirTech website http://www.airtech-streamlining.com/mis ... q.htm#tank:

"Can I use pump gas in your racing fuel tanks?
Modern pump gas is pretty crappy stuff. It contains a load of oxygenizers, fuel injector cleaners, ethanol, ketones and other additives that can wreak havoc on a fiberglass tank. Even though we use a high-end aircraft quality vinylester sealer on all of our tanks, it is possible a reaction may occur between pump gas and the tank liner.
We therefore recommend that anyone planning on using pump gas in any of our tanks first coat the inside of the tank with a fuel tank liner like Kreem . Furthermore, he following brands were recommended by experienced customers:

Caswell Plating
KBS Coatings

Last but not least, always use a fuel filter."
