I wanted some opinions on the best Gas Tank liner that they've used. Most user friendly atleast.

I liked the Por 15 also. A bit messy and kind of time consuming but the end result was real nice.
However I can't imagine using it on a painted tank & not fucking it up the paint.

I'd love to hear about Red-kote Paul. Easy,Messy, Cheaper?

i've used por-15 on sucio motos crapped out tank and it worked well, very well. buy the smallest can... as you cannot store and reuse it after it has been opened(so they say). prep too, buy the two xtra chemicals to do this as well.

Por 15 is great stuff.

Don't ever use Creem Kreem or whatever it is. I have seen all sorts of bad stuff with that.

Wurth rust guard - it coats over anything. Just get the large loose pieces out and coat away. Plus it's black.

I've never used red-kote but I can't imagine it's much better.

And I agree - Kreem sucks!!

Red Kote is the best hands down. It's the only stuff I use. I've tried POR15 and kreem and they suck compared to Red Kote. Super easy to work with. It's pretty cheap too.

I've been very happy with POR-15. Never heard of Red Coat till now, but I'm gonna check it out.

Red kote. Can't say how easy it was took tank to old man who did radiator for my Jeep years ago. Had a couple of holes he found when pressure testing it and everything else. Charged me 10 bucks more than 50 bucks he was going to charge me for the other work. He's been in business in same shop since 1965 and swears by Red Kote.

Kreem sucks. Didn't work for shit on my first tank

Simple, one stage...it's thick like molasses, takes a day or two and hardens up nice.

It also seems to not care too much about some existing rust; obviously you want your tank clean, but some liners will simply not work if there's rust...about $35 a quart?

I'm gonna try the Red Kote. The Kreem stuff sucked. It doesnt spread evenly and it's a mess. Major dissapointment.
