Boric Acid Sign In

Someone poured boric acid in my gas tank. It caused fuel pump to fail. The area where you insert the nozzle to add gas is badly corroded. How do I fix this problem? The fuel gauge is not working and fuel pump failed and blew fuse in 1 or 2 minutes after starting car. Already replaced fuel pump. What do I do next?

Re: Boric Acid Sign In

how do you know it was boric acid?
You might want to contact insurance company (Comprehensive coverage?) they will likely want a police report.
As far as the repair aspect, telling us what type of vehicle, make, model, year etc will help..
Suggest you start with removing fuel tank and fuel filler tube, inspect and determine all damage ie pump, sending unit, and the model specific components. Other than the particle clogging and sludge effect etc I would see no harm - its used in some fuel treatments.
