Gas Tank Repair

Most fuel tanks are molded from a resilient plastic polymer called polyethylene. Polyethylene is typically transluscent and very impact resistant. If your gas tanks are made of polyethylene plastic, epoxy will not stick to it. The only semi-permanent solution is to use "Shoe-Goo" which can be found in the footwear department of an Wal-Mart.
