i know the answer to this.. but my brain won't let me retrieve the information at this point in time.. I can show you the results of painting a gas tank with rattle cans... it was an awesome job... until the gas fumes peeled it all away.

satin paint informatiom

Dear slimvulcanrider After a week of searching for a week on the Net. and several calls to the manufacturer-- I have the answer. After coating the color coat whatever it is 3 coats) you need 3 coats of Polyurethane clear coat satin or gloss) it is gasoline proof. Urethane is not and used for wood. Lance recommended Rustoleum professional with a clear coat of satin or gloss I'll try it when it warms up. I hope this helps.

Check out this company. They used to have a fuel resistant satin clear coat in a spray can, but I can no longer find it on their site. I did find a gloss clear coat that is fuel resistant.
