    Harley used a different tank sealer in 03 than they did in 06..... For some reason the sealer in the 04 and back comes loose more often than not.....

    without the liner they would have been fine as this happened in aug 2009 and they are still being used by a buddy on his bike and no rot or rust at all.....
    they were only 6 years old when it happened,...
    & like ya say, the next year Harley stopped sealing tanks,... I wonder why ??….
    I have known many who has had this happen to one degree or another on factory and home done sealants,... even had a friends Fiberglass tank ''Melt'' very quickly with alco gas …….

    I don't use tank sealer.......However,Caswell Plating gas tank sealer is made from Phenol Novolac Epoxy..This is supposed to be completely resistant to gasoline and or alcohol...I have no experience with it, do a Google search for Caswell plating and those who report about using it..

    I’ve posted on here plenty about it.... but had caswell fail. I had the tank in halfs prior it was plenty clean and scuffed, then followed directions to the t. Then the shit was peeling off in no time, still haven’t figured out how to remove it. I’d rather have the tank rust out in 20 years than deal with that shit ever again.

    This why I don't use sealer....1000 guys will use Caswell, 950 says it the best ever..the other 50 have an issue despite doing it all perfectly...My luck is a fail...lol

    I used por15 in 4 tanks and i've never had an issue. Yall need to read the instructions before you seal your tanks hahah

    It only takes one ruined paint job before you realize its cheap insurance

    I’d rather repaint than try to get failed bullshit out of a tank. I can read and Caswell failed me.

    Getting caswell out is easy. Use Paint Stripper that contains Methylene Chloride. I've done it myself, it works (welded on a sealed tank, destroyed the sealer). Then I applied more caswell, because that stuff is the shit.
