I noticed some small bubbles inside my plastic tank, but they were noticeable early on and haven't appeared to get any worse. Always thought the only liner I would have confidence in is more of the same plastic or just buy a whole replacement tank. Probably keeping it out of the sun will do more then anything toward saving the plastics.

I can order anything in the way of specialty fuels delivered right to my door, I just use the same fuel dealer for house propane and then they don't charge delivery, they stock both sunoco and VP, surprised if you can't do the same only cheaper. Same supplier claimed to sell 92 octane pump gas in non-ethanol added and if you pumped their higher octane you would be buying ethanol.

I have 2 bikes with plastic tanks. There is an app that tells you where to find non-ethanol pump fuel. Sometimes a pain in the ass but not as bad as an expanded gas tank is.

thanks for link. will be moving from a state that has 9 listed(nj) to either nc(1100+) or sc(600+) this fall.
