I don't ride competitions or rallies, but that is my plan too - I've heard that it holds over 4 liters, and that would be about right as a backup water supply in the backcountry.

I emailed manufacturer and he said ok for plastics, is runny enough to swirl around, can ship to Australia.

Yet to try it however.

Any guinea pigs t there?
"BLUE LIGHTNING - FUEL TANK LINER-PT. Seals all types of tanks Metal, Fiberglass, & Plastic Not affected by fuel additives. Flexible Doesn't dry rock hard like others. Seals Pin holes & seem leaks. 1pt. will do approx. 15 gallons Use Blue Lightning Rust Remover to clean tank of any rust or films in the tank. "

Nice find! Now who's going to play "Mr. Science" and see if the 'Blue Lightning Rust Remover' ... removes the plastic sub tank. <lol>

cheers! E-Ticket[/quote:4pzzhyh4]

I just received a pint of the stuff, and am going to use it in the next two weeks or so to see if it seals the subframe. I too called the manufacturer who said it will work for plastic applications. I guess I am going to be the test mule on this. I'll keep you posted.

Unless someone comes out with a new subframe tank or a clean tank, I will also try this.

If it works for you I will give it a go too! That's brave of me isn't it!

Someone's gotta go first.

I am on board too if it works If it holds fuel maybe it could be possible to just use it as a reservoir for the fuel & siphon it to the real fuel tank. In case it is impossible or too difficult to turn it into a real fuel tank. Would beat carrying it in bottles. I would prefer not to have to carry liters of fuel in my back pack or fanny pack. Then all I would have to carry in my pack would be a little tube in a zip lock baggie. I do not know much but it may be something you technical minded guys can play around with.

I have it, but haven't had time to start this project. Probably will during the Thanksgiving break.
