Default Re: gas tank giving me the blues

There is a tank sealer called kreem, its about $20 for I think a pint, or maybe its a quart I dont remember aymore, but the $20 bottle is enough for two tanks if you follow the instructions on the bottle. There are some who will see that Kreem can flake, but I never had any issues with it. lambofgod, I think the reason your back studs are leaking is because of the way you are mounting your tank. I could be wrong, but the way you described it, you put the front bracket on first and tightened it all the way, and then put the back bracket on later. This is why it leaks, you are breaking the rear studs because there is already pressure from the front bracket being tight. You should be putting both brackets on at the same time, and tightening each nut a little at a time until all 4 nuts are evenly torqued down.
