Pull yours and have it sealed or get a junkyard one. Post a WTB post in the Subaru Marketplace.

Yeah - or find a Junk yard that doesn't punch holes in them. Don't know where your from, but some yards do, and others don't. A new tank is over $300. Get yours welded, or get a used one.

My Brat "Brat Patrol" has internal rust flakes that plug up the pick up tube.
A Harley rider friend speaks of a gas tank sealer they use on old shovels tanks and such
First an acid "etching" solution is added, then the sealer is put in - sloshed about, the excess poured out and then let it dry.

Has anyone ever heard of this treatment?
A quick Goggle search turned up one of my favorite companies
POR 15
Think I may try this

This is feasible for our applications (all boneyard tanks in my area look toast and 300 GW's is not in the cards
Maybe I should post a new thread?

Yes - but if you look at the year column for both those parts, it says "85-87" and "85-89". I'm betting both of those are EA82 tanks. Won't work for his application.
