I rebuild a lot of carb's & that gas tank sealer fills them up. I wouldn't use that stuff in a lawn mower tank if I was going to throw it away.I just did a H Deere carb that was rebuilt 3 yrs ago,tank was relined with some red sealer the same time. This tractor has set with 10% ethanol 87 for about 10 mo. The float & needle was stuck tight. I look in the tank and whole btm of the tank the sealer is all bubbled up. I am sure that these tanks are not sealed and cured out properly. Maybe they need air circulated. I would much rather deal with rust. At least you can control the rust with magnets, stand pipes, and a good sediment bowl & screen. That material that FIT uses does a good job of cleaning dirty tanks.

A note of thanks from me ont he difference between "tinning" and "sweating" fluxes. I've soldered a lot of steel, but I always used premixed solder and flux we got from a gunsmith supply place. The muriatic acid rang a bell in my head and makes sense. I just forget the difference over the years!
