Step-by-Step Restoration

Before Fuel Tank Repair
Before: This fuel tank had small pinhole leaks on the end near the seam. If the tank had a competitor's old failed sealer, it should be removed before starting the repair process.
Step 1 fuel tank repair
Step 1:Mix 1 quart Cleaner Degreaser with 1 quart of hot water. This solution will be used to remove any gum, varnish, or sludge from the inside of the tank.
 
Step 2 fuel tank repair
Step 2: Pour the entire bottle of Metal Prep to dissolve rust, coat the tank with zinc phosphate, and etch the metal for better adhesion of the sealer.
 
Step 3 fuel tank repair
Step 3: After the tank is clean, drain the tank and rinse thoroughly with water. Let the tank dry. When totally dry, pour in the entire can of Fuel Tank Sealer.
 
Step 4 fuel tank repair
Step 4: After all surfaces have been coated, drain the tank for about an hour to remove excess sealer from the tank.
Completed fuel tank repair
Step 5: Once repaired, use fuel preservation & stabilizer to keep your entire fuel system in proper working order and to avoid "stale gas" problems in your future!

Wrong ingredients in box

There wasn’t any gunk/ degreaser- just 2 containers of metal etching.

Close but Failed

I used five days for this process. The degreasing process went off smoothly. The prep stage also, no problem. However the sealant didn't fix the leak. Someone had tried to repair this tank previously using JB Weld or equivalent. I used a wire wheel to degrease the weld and get to bare metal all around it on the outside. But apparently the POR15 doesn't stick to JB weld and I still have a leak in exactly the same place. So I will someday cut this section of tank out and weld a new piece of steel in there. I'm hoping that the POR15 seal doesn't prevent welding. Basically job was a fail. I ended up using a used, non-leaking, tank for the time being.
The kit was nicely thought out, had decent instructions, and I"m sure it works great in a tank that is ALL metal.

From what I can see, the repair is good, but the job is too recent to give a definitive review.
It is not possible to drain the product from the tank completely, so care should be taken to introduce the repair solution sparingly.
This is undoubtedly the case with many motorcycle gas tanks and the instructions should include that advice, if they do not

- POR-15 Motorcycle Fuel Tank Repair Kit Directions

It is important to understand each product in your repair kit and how it works. Proper chemical interaction is essential for achieving the best possible bond of the sealer to the inside of the tank. Fuel Tank Sealer does not adhere well to plastic. If your fuel tank contains plastic components inside, they should be removed before applying Fuel Tank Sealer.

Please remember these instructions are general guide lines only and cannot and do not cover every application and environment. If you remain unsure as how to proceed, please call toll-free for technical advice at 800-457-6715.
