Re: Leaking fiberglass fuel tank

Ethanol in the fuel WILL slowly disolve the fiberglass and it will gum up everything ai have been down this road and it is BAD news. I would replace the tank with either the high density polyethelene or stainless period. A bladder is also a possibility. depending on shapes and accessability. I went with the poly.
