fuzzybabybunny Posted December 13, 2016 Share Posted December 13, 2016 Just wanted to share this. I had multiple cracks in my plastic fuel tank where the brass fittings screw into the plastic. Gasoline would rush out pretty quick as soon as my paramotor would go horizontal (like laying it on its side in the car) and of course the petrol smell sucked. I tried Goop adhesive but petrol ate through it. It would eat through silicon as well. A guy at the auto shop recommended me this: https://www.google.com.au/search?q=rapid+fix+adhesive I've used it on my tank and so far it seems to be holding up. No leaks. I'm currently in the process of doing a prolonged submersion test and I'll let you guys know how it holds up. It was either this or pay Backbone $200 to mail me a new fuel tank or pay someone to do plastic welding. I think this adhesive was the best option. Sets and hardens in less than 10 seconds.
