The only truly Ethanol proof fuel tank sealer that has been available for over 30 years
The amount of Ethanol in fuel now is causing a problem in older Metal fuel tanks and a bigger problem in Fibreglass and Plastic fuel tanks making them porous, this problem will only get worst as the volume of Ethanol added increases in order to make Petrol more Environmentally Friendly.
Using our Fuel Tanks Sealer will create a solid seal within the fuel tank, and make it Ethanol proof permantley, If your Metal fuel tank has had a tank seal fitted previously, this would need to be removed before applying the new sealer, most Kreem and POR15 sealers will fail, sometimes very quickly, so we have developed a Products that will remove these products.
This product works on Vapour and Liquid, so 1 Litre is enough to clear the old sealants from the largest fuel tanks

If you use a thinners to wash out the fuel tank, please only use Lacquer Thinners as most others contain chemicals that could react and cause the seal to weaken, some people use normal thinners and have no problem but without knowing what the thinners contains we can not guarantee this If you need all 3 products, than it would be cheaper to buy our renovation kilt, which you can find here by Clicking Here>>>
Fibreglass and Plastic Fuel Tanks
We advise against using our Tank Seal Remover in Plastic or Fibreglass Tanks as its to aggressive, the only way to remove the old seal is manually, once you have removed as much of the old seal as you can, it is best to wash out using Hot Water and a Dish Washer Tablet mixed, if there is any of the old sealer still in the fuel tank, as long as it is stable, it os OK to seal over the top
Painting Fuel Tanks after Sealing
If you are think of painting a Fibreglass or Plastic Fuel tank that has become porous, after you have applied sealer. please wait up to 4 weeks, after application, as there will still be Ethanol in the tank structure, and by painting you will trap the ethanol between the sealer and the paint and it will push back through, let it breathe out of the Fibreglass/Plastic, before applying the correct primmer

Cleaned all the fibreglass tank out as per the instructions and once dry mixed the two tins taking note of the pointers on temperature and then emptied into tank swilled round and hey presto job done all in all just follow the instructions included
New tank buyed from Triumph in 2014 because the old 1995 tank does suspend inside.
The carburetors was finished inside with plastic residues from the old tank, so i have to clean them.
Sign of disintegration after a few weeks in the new tank !
Again extensive cleaning of carburators after a few weeks
the carbs where gridlocked with plastic residues.
Cleaning the tank inside without success.
So i have to clean the carbs for the third time.
After fast supply of this Tank Sealer i am hopefully looking forward.
Easy handling by good preparation and perfect temperature.
In a few years we will knew if success is steady.
Best regards, Jochen
Read various forums and Caswell Tank Sealer is highly recommended. Email sent to company to clarify details was promptly replied to. Kit fairly expensive. Attempted to use the kit on a warm day after watching various You-Tube demonstrations. Read the instructions and started. Think it was too cool on the day as the sealant remained fluid for longer than the directions said it would so there were problems trying to get it to set.
I left the extra in to give extra protection over the captive nuts in the tank sides.
Finished article back on the bike (had to drill and file the plastic to get the petrol tap in - but that is my fault for not emptying the extra material out) and is working fine so far.
Would I recommend using this again - certainly (ask me in a couple of years if the seal is still working!). BUT PAY ATTENTION TO THE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE AND TEMPERATURE OF THE TANK. Think what saved me was the tank is Black!
Product arrived very quickly and with good instructions, easy to use and appears to have done a good job but time will tell.
Comsonic 650 left my tank looking like new inside.To keep it that way I used Gas Tank Sealer.The results are simply amazing.The tank now has a healthy shine inside and continues to look as good, or even better than new.Simply amazing.
I had to see the results to believe it; my irrelpaceable,internally rusty, petrol ravaged fuel tank has been bought back from the dead- not only that it also looks better than new inside. Quite simply unbelievable.
High cost but it saved my rare 1968 fastback fiberglass tank so well worth the cost
if you have an acerbis plastic motorcycle tank from the 90s and onwards it will eventually succumb to ethanol vapours and warp,swell blister,etc (mostly ducati,triumph and aprilia are affected)
i have now used this product on 2 x aprilia and a triumph and its easy to use and the colours show the coverage inside and does a perfect job,i cannot recommend this product highly enough
to coin a phrase does what it says on the tin
