Not sure, I just go buy the 4L jugs at the grocery store.  I can check the label on the jug I have at home tonight and see if it says the concentration on it.

Thanks man!

Just got the fresh petcocks from MikeXS and probably gonna sand the tank with 1000grit then respray with 2K clear...in between I would like to use the vinegar!

Cheers!

Vinegar is just mild acetic acid, any concentration will do, the higher the faster it will work.

So guys...the XS is finally MOT'd and now I can spend time on the paint.
How would you guys treat paint chips on the tank?
There are a few spots were rust spots are showing...
Should I just leave them alone and 2K over them or sand and respray?

Thanks

Little bit of diesel and some metal bb's in the tank and shake it up really good. That should clear anything from the i aide of the tank

Unless you know exactly what kind of clear is already on there you run a risk of having compatibility issues. If it was me I'd do a light color sand, buff it, and call it a day.

Never had any issues combining 2K paint with any other paint,the only issue iŽm having right now is that there are minor rust points on the outside of the tank and clearing over them could be an issue..
