Re: Fuel Tanks


Look at all the Ezes flying around with composite tanks and no problems.

I have had the same thoughts, and after lots of excellent advice from various Q-Listers I am going for aluminium for my main tank. I will leave some of the composite tank structure in place (front/sides/centre) so as to not compromise structural integrity. It will weigh more but I'm only 57kg (9 st) so I don't care.

I have been searching the archives as I am still not satisfied with the idea
that fuel can leak through you tank and into the foam of you airplane . I
also wan to burn auto fuel . After all of my reading it seems the only
people who have actually done anything is using a slosh coating which is not
really practical it a Q but it seems to be the only option is you want to
burn car gas or rid of the possible fuel leak.
The one exception is in the Archive Sam in one entry said something
about using a fuel resistant epoxy but you could not get to all of the
places to sand to easily recoat the entire inside of the tank. Any other
ideas or am I making much to do for nothing Darrell Daniels Tri Q rebuild
