I too have had a "treated"..."coated" fuel tank failure and it wasn't simply a leak.
What happened was a bit of the coating got free and found it's way downstream ending up in the carb causing the engine to run lean and burned up a valve .. Ended up with buying a valve job $$$ plus a new tank $$$..
