    features & benefits of Halfords Petrol Resistant Lacquer

    • Provides a tough, durable gloss protective finish which is petrol resistant
    • Suitable for use with all acrylic paints
    • Ideal for motorcycle petrol tanks

    Please note: Petrol splashes or spillages should be wiped off immediately. The lacquer should be allowed to fully harden which will take at least 2 weeks, before using rubbing compound on overspray or to blend into existing paintwork.

    Additional Information

    It is a characteristic of petrol resistant lacquers that they may cause yellowing over white paint.  It is therefore recommended that a maximum of 2 coats are used for white finishes.  If a deeper gloss is required, spray two light coats of Universal Clear Lacquer (324905) on paint work, allow to fully dry then overcoat with two light coats of Petrol Resistant Lacquer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by It does work I tried a can of this without success, and I binned it. Determined to crack the problem I discovered (with a new can) that it does not work if the spray can is cold! Stand the can in HOT water for about 15 minutes and then shake it for 2 minutes. Spray on a handheld board or cloth to check that the spray is good and that you are pressing the button correctly (the stuff is thicker than normal paint and incorrect finger position will cause spatter). Work quickly, moving from the cloth or board WITHOUT TAKING YOUR FINGER OFF THE BUTTON. Now I'm not going to put petrol anywhere near my bike tank for about 4 weeks. NOTE: My tank is not white. It is pastel green and has not discoloured at all. 02 August 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Halfords Petrol Resistant Lacquer This product likes to clog the spray jet and splutters.Job was going great this product spoilt the job had to rub down and start again used another manufactures product that was far better 18 September 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Not what it says on the tin After spending countless hours preparing, priming and spraying my motorcycle tank i choose this as the top coat. Followed the directions on the can applied three coats with correct time between coats, it does not spray well leaving a heavy orange peel finish. Left it to cure for weeks before using cutting compound to achieve a decent finish. Again left for weeks before final assembley to bike and first time it came in to contact with petrol didn't have chance to wipe off the spill before it ate through the paint. Please risk your paint job with this product. 16 April 2013

    Rated 4 out of 5 by no problems as long as you follow the instructions to the letter I found this to be good stuff, I did'nt however use it on a white tank 15 May 2012
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Halfords Petrol Resistant Lacquer 300ml Don't waste your time, effort of money on this product. It may work but I've tried it on too occasions without any success inspite of following the quite poor instructions. The can should say much more clearly that it cannot be over-coated at anytime after it has cured. As it is recommended for motorcycle petrol tanks which are often scratched and need minor repairs, this product is not fit for purpose, in my view. The finish coming out of the can is also very suspect in that it does not seem to flow very well and gives a poor final finish. 26 April 2012
    Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT USE Do not use this product on white paint, it turns it yellow!! It says on the tin 'use sparingly on white'. This is not enough warning it should say DO NOT USE ON WHITE PAINT!!!! 31 March 2012
