Anyone ever use the gas tank coatings for the insides of the metal tanks? Are they worth a crap? Easy to do or is there a better solution? (other than a new plastic tank)

I use one of the coatings in an old jeep that I had and wasen't worth a crap. But that was years ago so they might have a better product out now?

Kinda what I figured. Maybe I'll just put some marbles in it shake the $hit out of it, rinse, and put it back on.

AH thats a good idea! I'll use BB's instead.
Yeah, I heard BBs work better, too. Make sure you put a good inline fuel filter on if you don't already have one on.

I don't have one on there yet but I am going to put one on. I have to clean it all up anyway because my reserve doesn't work (and I hate walking). and when I'm doing all that I'll clean the carb out and put in that bigger jet.

The Honda didn't cause you to have to walk, did it?

NO! I caused myself to have to walk by not checking the gas first.. LOL But had my reserve been working I would have been fine. Still not the Honda's fault because I knew it didn't work. Hasn't worked for quite a while.

OK, I just wondered. LOL. I've rode Honda 4-wheelers, since they came out in 1984 and I've rode a lot. Honda has never caused me to have to walk. I own Yamahas, too, and they have never made me walk, but I haven't rode the Yamahas as much as I have rode the Hondas.

Nope its never made me walk yet, nor has the Yamaha 200 my parents have had since I was a kid. There have been plenty of times the Yamaha wouldn't start so I could even leave with it.. but it never made me walk.. LOL

I have used a product called Kreem for motorcycle tanks and old lanterns that I restore. It's a long process but if you follow the instructions, exactly, it works great. I like to use a handfull of wood screws to clean the inside of metal tanks.

I never thought about the wood screws. I'll bet that would work good. All those sharp edges would remove the scale and rust quicker.
