I've used the POR15 kit on a diesel tank on my xcavator. It worked well. There were several 1/4" holes in it when I got it and someone had put an inch of clay in the bottom to stop the leak. I noted the fuel filters plugged up real quick and that led me to the job. I enlarged the holes and welded shut, and then used the kit to derust and seal.
Basically it is a bottle of lye to degrease, a bottle of Hydrochloric to eat off the rust and a can of sealer.

Finally decided to do something. Welded flat bar on the spot where the tank sits. Really thin there, but all went well. No solder run out anywhere, looks like they just used it around the fittings, and to repair a couple of leaks. Using .035" wire so I was careful. Finished all 5 patches and ready for the liner. I ordered the liner kit through a dealer here in Ontario, actually cheaper than ordering from the manufacturer, and I don't have to pay the courier any nasty brokerage fees. Appreciating all the advice I got, thanks everyone.
