Av Gas 100LL in a fiberglass fuel tank.

With the Two Stroke Extravaganza coming up next Sat.

I want to put the stock fiberglass tank back on my OSSA MAR in place of the plastic tank I use.

I do not want to do the Caswell was I have read that it will come off in time.

Do you think I would have any problems using Av Gas 100LL in my fiberglass tank?

Thanks

100 LL Avgas has no ethanol so it should't cause a problem in a fiberglass tank.

I agree. It's the ethanol that's causing everyone problems.
Avgas is good old fashioned leaded gas. And it stores well over long
periods.
I'm a pilot. I know these things.

More about the fuel....

Is your Ossa tuned for the avgas, and running well on it? That stuff burns differently, and caused detonation in my 2T roadracers that went away with pump premium. If yer engine is good running it, then I hardly think it would cause any problems in yer tank.

If you do the prep work according to the directions, the Caswell liner will never come off; it's an epoxy.

If you do the prep work according to the directions the Kreem liner will always come off; it's a steaming pile of crap.
