    Eric!

    The Indian tanks I mentioned were new, from Germany (perhaps manufactured in India?).

    I assisted my associate with re-soldering the area; He held the heat gun while I worked the iron.
    Although I wasn't there when he tested them, he is quite qualified, so the seepage was diabolical.

    My point is magical sealers don't exist.
    And beware Folks: JBWeld, which I used to swear by for its fuel resistance, failed the last two years in a row in my immersion tests.
    (No time for a test this year...)

    The fuels are constantly changing, and combining brands seems to make things worse.

    Back to Auger's concerns,
    Prepping tank internals demands aggressive cleaning, and even my tumbler with aquarium gravel has its short-comings.
