Re: Leaking fiberglass fuel tank
Odds are, based on years of oil business expereince, that the fuel has permeated the FRP just enough that nothing is going to bond. The probability of pealing is very high. Additionally, the tank may be leaking due to failure of the laminate; it's not some pinhole corrosion issue.
I'd build a new one, using a more suitable resin.
