Personally I wouldn't coat it. Most of the time rust in the tank is caused by a tank sitting with little or no gas in it and the tank sweats and it rusts. As long as you keep gas in it with some fuel stabilizer in the winter time, you shouldn't have any problems. If the tank sealer lets go then you really have problems. I would use tank sealer as a last resort instead of a preventive measure. But that is my opinion

Jason, you are referring to not coating a new tank, correct?

Do you agree that I should forget the old tank and get a new one?

Yes I meant I would not coat a new tank. As far as repairing the old one, that is up to you. I have fixed several but that was just because I didn't want to spend the money for a new one.

Thanks, Jason.

I already ordered a new one - just under $200 bucks, shipped. (It's only money! For more, see my recent post on the Tractor Talk forum.)

If it had been only a loose baffle, and the tank was clean, I would have lived with it.

OR, if the baffle was good, and the tank was a little rusty, I would have cleaned and recoated it.
