Why not some other aerosol clear rubber seal coating like flexcoat or similar?khomer2, hard to say. My current tank cracked a few days days ago when I put a little hand pressure on it. Did not take much pressure and currently, I have Gorilla tape on it till the new one arrives. I would guess the outside of the tank takes the worst beating and with my new one, I am going to start applying 303 protectorant to the outside on a regular basis...that should help.....
Our oem mats for the minivan have a spongy foam underside that deteriorates over time and flakes off. I used a cordless drill with a brass or ss wire cup brush to remove the stuff and then applied black flexcoat over the entire backside area of the floor mat. Still holds up today with no wear tear on the underside. Topside of the oem is good still (because we still keep our all weather rubber mats on top of it all year round)
