What are they doing about the Fiberglass Storage Tanks they had all of the gas stations on the street upgrade to years ago ?
I guess we will be hearing about that at some point!
Digital Photography & Video one BYTE at a time !
I see a lot of race cars and drag boats who run Alcohol, they all have either plastic or aluminum tanks.
Aside from the gas tank issue, I know of lot of people who blew their stuff up last year... They ran fine for years and now with the alcohol they have detonated.. Both high performance and cruisers... One guy at our marina blew up a new engine, mercury told him to scratch...and another friend blew up one of his Yamaha's...we found nothing wrong with the engine, other than the hole in the block and piston...
Personally, I decided to step up a jet in the secondaries of my carbs for a little safety net...
This is the coating I used to seal my fiberglass tanks in my previous boat. I am told that many builders use it as well as the military. It seemed to have work well in my application.
Also remember, if your tanks are leaking you my never know. It could be leaking into the coring of the hull and you are cruising around in a gas soaked sponge!. I heard of a boat were the coring was soaked with gas from bow to stern.

All fuel supply lines that are used in a boat must be coast guard approved USCG type A1, SAE J1527, as a part of that they are all gasoline and alcohol resistant and permiation proof. Am I missing something or do they just have it written on the hose and it still eats away at it?
