Bill Hirsch Gas Tank Sealant.
This American product is the best way to repair and restore your petrol or diesel tank. Simple application, includes extensive application information and product information sheet. Will seal pinhole leaks and seams and prevent rusting.
Once the liquid is poured inside it works by setting and lining the tank to form a "tank inside a tank"
Suitable for all fuels including ethanol and alcohol.
Suitable for steel, aluminium, stainless steel, fibreglass, plastic & ABS tanks.
Full instructions included.
According to the manufacturer it is "World's No. 1 Gas Tank Sealer. Impervious to all fuel types. Over 2,000,000 sold to date".
Having used this product ourselves on several occasions we can vouch that it does a superb job, and we believe it is the only tank repair product in the UK market which is ethanol proof. Ethanol alcohol is increasingly becoming an issue with other sealants designed for this purpose as they were formulated before the ever increasing amounts of ethanol added to todays petrol.
