New Kreem brand fuel tank liner kit

Run across this on Ebay..........

This kit includes 16oz of rust dissolver / tank etcher, 8oz of final rinse / H2O remover and, 16oz of fuel tank liner. It also comes with full instructions on how to clean and coat your tank. I had spent many hours trying to clean rust out of tanks, cleaning rust out of carbs and fuel filters. I then used this Kreem fuel tank liner kit, and found it is a great option for rusty fuel tanks. It is low cost compared to replacing the tank (some tanks you can not even find anymore). Formulated from state of the art componets, Kreem fuel tank liner prevents rust and stops leaks.

Are you recommending it or asking about it?

I have heard bad things about the Kreem kit. No personal experience mind you, just heard that they don't stick well and break down.

For that reason I have gone w/ the KBS products. Haven't actually put one in yet, but I have one in my possession and another on the way to take care of my tanks.

I'll post a thorough review when I finish putting one in.

They are comparable in price to the Kreem and you can even pick them up "used" if you find a guy who bought it and didn't use it. I have one coming in that circumstance. Got it about $15 off that way.

Kreem is one of the worst tank liners out there today for flaking off and clogging your fuel system. The PO kreemed the tank on my bike and after I bought it, the first thing I had to do was clean the carbs because a piece had flaked off and clogged my pilot jet. One of the guys on the VN750 yahoo group turned me on to this - HEAVY DUTY UTILITY & CYCLE TANK REPAIR KIT. The kit contains
1-Quart (949mls) POR-Strip (Removes old tank coating)
1-Quart (949mls) Marine Clean (Cleans any gums and varnishes from the tank)
1-Quart (949mls) Metal Ready (Preps tank for sealer)
1-8 oz (236mls) Gas Tank Sealer
1- piece of repair cloth (For patching exterior leaks)
1- 1” foam brush (For patching exterior leaks)

I`ve never used any liner kits, but think the concept itself has some drawbacks. This electrolosis method from the verses, that converts the solid rust in the tank back to an inert metal seems to me to be a preferred method. JMHO. https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1153

I only passed it along because it said:

"Kreem fuel tank liner prevents rust and stops leaks"

There were a few on here that said that their tank was leaking and wanted to know if there was something to stop them.

My method of using acid to etch the rust away and then navel jelly to treat the tank works too, leaves no residue to flake off later and is quick especially compared to the other methods I've read about. It lasts too, for years. Its also cheap. I've never tried the electric method, but many on here swear by it and I believe it must be a good one since so many have had good results with it.

I really shy away from any of the sealers and coatings. I've read too many "flaky" stories.
