This forum is for "HELP" with the site, or posting problems etc. Post your question in the lounge.

BTW, find another tank.................its probablty a lot less than $30.

I suggest the Hotrodders Lounge rather than Site Suggestions and Help. Problems with a fuel tank are not the same as problems with the website.

Might try some Permatex #2 non-hardening sealer. Gas won't eat it (alcohol will), and it stays just a bit gummy so the vibration might not cause it too much grief.

If you don't mind ghetto fixes, I stuck a piece of car fuel line into the hole in my mower tank when I put a small clear fuel filter between the tank & carb. The fuel line was just a little bigger than the hole in the tank, and it didn't drip for several years.
