   I have repaired many Ford fuel tanks and made quite a modification to the tank in my Jeep. I put a hole in the tank more than half way down the side, mounted a new pickup tube and an electric fuel pump. The jeep still had five gallons in it at the time. That was nineteen years ago and it still has not leaked.
   J.B. Weld (slow cure) two part epoxy and fiber glass is the way. The secret is clean, clean, clean, and scuff up the area with 180 sandpaper for better grip for the J.B. Weld and let it cure 18 hours.
   I fix two of the steady steam gasoline leaks while the gas was running out. I cleaned, sanded and applied J.B. Weld on a large washer and large self tapping screw. the washer had fiber glass cloth saturated with J.B. Weld. The secret here is barely snug the screw just enough to stop the flow of gasoline.
Oh… And don't be smoking… At any time!!!

Where there's a will there is a way.. Don S..

BTW... If it's a plastic tank with a crack V grove the crack clean, sand, clean then apply fiber glass and J.B. Weld. Cover an inch ether side and ends of the crack.

PLEASE >>> A SIG similar to mine can be VERY HELPFUL to all the members!
