Default Re: Fiberglass Gas Tanks

Please be very very careful about fiberglass gas tanks. Ethanol and fiberglass do not play well together. My main hobby is boating and the boating industry had fits when ethanol was introduced. Bertram boats were built with fiberglass tanks that were also structural. Ethanol added to gas caused these tanks to break down and clog filters, carbs and injectors. The only option was to cut open the deck and remove the tanks, rebuild the stringers and install new aluminum tanks.
