Remove an Existing Tank Sealer

Many fuel tank sealers that claim to be Ethanol are now proving not to be, each day we have many customers who have used POR15 and Kreem and the product has now failed.

You will need to remove the old seal before you are able to apply a new Ethanol resistant seal to the fuel tank.

If possible remove the fuel tap, this is just in case the tank seal remover gets into the rubber components within as it will damage them.

Block any breather holes, and remove any internal fuel pumps, or mechanicals that are fitted for the fuel gauge.

Pour in the Tank Seal Remover, this product works from both the liquid and the vapour, normally 1 Litre of Fuel Tank Sealer will be sufficient for any fuel tank up to approx 33 Litres, if you are removing a seal from a larger tank, then please use 1-33 as your calculation.

Leave the tank for until the old sealer has either loosened or diluted away, this can take anywhere from 10 minutes to overnight depending on what seal has been used.

Once the old seal has been removed, pour the tank contents out, and then wash the fuel tank out with a soap mix, we always recommend a dish washer tablet is ideal for this.

You are now ready to reseal or if any rust, apply our rust remover .

THIS PRODUCT IS ONLY FOR METAL FUEL TANKS, PLEASE DO NOT USE FUEL TANK SEAL REMOVER ON FIBREGLASS, PLASTIC OR CARBON FIBRE TANKS
