Has anybody figured out how to keep the graphics from turning yellow on the Fuel Tank? Maybe stick on 16 mil background first?

The only two techniques I'm aware of that work are to avoid putting gas in the tank, or to change the graphics once a month or more.  Neither is particularly practical.


The problem is that the plastic actually allows certain fuel vapors to pass through it and taint the graphics.  Unless someone comes up with a sealer of some sort for the tank, yellow bubbles are the order of the day.

I'd like to know also. I gave up years ago...forgot what it looks like with graphics on the tank.
