Bit More Detail For You

Codprawn, you might be looking at this (POR15) for sealing your tanks.

http://purchasing.uk-plc.net/website...olisaspx=false

The fuel Transfer hose uses a shreader valve and connects to your normal halfords charge up compressor (you know one of those that has a torch jump leads etc.) The reason most people have bought them is to carry additional fuel on board and be able to transfer to the main tank without the necessity to lift or move the jerry cans, as the hose is 10 feet long and has the normal gun trigger you get at the petrol station. My 'halfords' 39.00 air pump emties the cans in about 90 seconds.
Other people have bought them to refuel jet ski's and the 4 wheel guys for track days. The hand pump also empties in about 1 - 2 mins depending on your action!!
The Septer fast flow spouts are also very good as no glug glug as they have an air return. Unfortunatly quite expensive as I import from US.

At the end of the day horses for courses and all that.

Also if any of my products are bought and are unsuitable I give a 14 days full money back guarantee. Anyway if anyone wants any info just drop me a mail or post on here.

Best

Greg

Rumour has it that it was invented for Massey-Tractorson tanks as they leak otherwise.
Just looked it up and some people said it was crap - flaked off and caused more probs.

This is supposed to be much better but it's only a 2pack epoxy which I am sure could be had for less than 20!!!

Will ask these brilliant people next week - I have a feeling the epoxy aluminium I have on my LR chassis will do the job nicely.

You do have to remember that people are quite dim and expect it to reclaim scrap.

It'd probably help to pickle the inside of the tank first.

Good point. I see loads of people selling very expensive rust converters etc - all they are is phosphoric acid - machine mart do it quite cheap I think.

No offence but POR15 is way overpriced - not just with you - everywhere. They take a common industrial product - market it in a fancy way - then charge what they like!!!

The jerry can pumps are def of interest though. How robust is the manual one - it looks a bit flimsy in the pics but no way of telling without using it first.

For the sub 40 pound price that Greg (2012 Marine) is listing for the Scepter MFCs, why would you bother with the expense and hassle of trying to repair aging metal cans which vastly inferior and much less safe?

Because I am truly eco friendly and believe in recycling as much as possible - something I learned from my old Scottish Granny.............
