    I agree, sure I could just go buy another tank, but it would be much cheaper to fix it!
    Thanks for the info Guys

    I've used permatex "plastic tank repair kit" with great luck in the past. You can find it at any auto parts store. Comes with everything you need including sand paper and patch.

    It does say not reccomended for fuel tanks but it has worked well for me

    I have used JB weld in the past, lastedfor awhile but peeled off. Then I found the Seal All at Oreillys, and it works.
