    The thing most important to remember about self-sealing tanks is this: Find out which planes have them, and your plane doesn't then remember to bring some marshmallows.

    Like everything else in life there is more to this than at first glance.

    Most every plane has more than a single fuel tank. Even if a plane is said to have self sealing tanks, not all of the tanks would be self sealing.

    The Russians adn the Japanese plane designers prefered to use compressed CO2 to be pumped into the tanks to perform the same function as the rubber lined tanks we are all familiar with.

    Complex - like everything else.
