Somebody else had the same thought. A homebuilt aircraft was built with "Explosafe" in the fuel tanks. When they examined the wreckage, they found that it had wicked up water which resulted in an engine failure and a fatal crash. I believe "Explosafe" (compamy) is bankrupt and the product ("Explosafe") is no longer available. (There may be similar products though).
