I repaired a hole I could get almost my whole thumb in my aux tank aft of the rear axle and have been using it for almost two years now with no problem. It is call Pro Seal as far as I know you canít buy it on the civilian side, but if you donít find and thing else let me know I can get you some. I am a Blackhawk crew chief and we use it to seal just about everything on army aircraft. shian.huggler@us.army.mil

I will say that I have patched holes in gas tanks, with fuel actually running out, with good ole JB weld.

Worth a try

The stuff we use is a two part, but i have heard they make it in a tube. So it could be the same stuff.

Yes JB is a two part deal. Comes in two tooth paste tubes.

I prefer the "quick set" variety for all my on the road emergencies.

Saved another racers bottom last season.

Due to an install error, he had to ditch his tubes. It leaked like mad out of the wheel screws afterward. Mixed up some jb, and he didn't miss a round of qualifing.

Don't leave home without it.
