Is that really a good idea? Gasoline fumes and a source of heat like a gas ring on a range or even an electric eye? Sounds iffy to me. I would also think that any coating would effect the weight/buoyancy of one of those little plastic donuts. Just my thoughts.
My vote would go to replacing the float.
