What would liquid glass do if poured in gas tank
Well, I guess it would do what silicate does that is designed to coat a radiator tank in a protective layer. The silicate is not going to burn, as it evaporates from heat exposure, it is going to form layers. I have not exposed liquid glass to high temperature but my guess is that it is not very likely to light. My guesses are pretty worthless on this. It is almost something for Mythbusters. There is a small chance that the manufacturer of liquid glass could supply the answer. Whether they would tell is another matter.
I guess if you poured some gas in a bottle then some liquid glass, you could see how the two mixed. Later, if you poured it out, you would see if a film was left. I certainly would not expose the bottle to heat after putting gasoline it it. As to how detectable it would be, that would either depend on some fancy test or just the experience of someone who has worked on engines that were sabotaged by this.
Otherwise, you have to have a spare car you don't mind chancing on ruining to test this out upon.
