    I'm having difficulty finding a vinylester resin that is specifically listed as compatible with diesel fuel. I would rather not go along with a verbal assurance from a distributor. In ground tanks are typically FRP, exactly what resin are they made with?

    +1 for Express Composites as a vendor, hoping to make a supply run there soon.

    Contact a distributor.

    Here's a guide for AOC vs Ashland (now Ineos) vs Interplastic vs Reichold/Polynt
