Is the can automotive fix-a-flat as good on sealing small leaks as the way more
expensive slime-green and other (atv) sealants.......

    $5 for a blowout patch kit works great. They work on tubes or tubless if patched from the inside. Fix a flat is bad news.

    I have only used the fix-a-flat on lawn mower tires and seems to work on small leaks but if it is leaking around rim does not work very well.

    I have never had problems on ATV tires so never had reason to buy the green slime.

    The "Fix a Flat" is supposed to be corrosive(to the wheels)...don't know about the other brands you mentioned...but after 18 years of using "Fix a Flat" I reckon it's o.k.,...[;)]
