I have a very small hole on the top of the gas tank on my mower. Whats the best way to fix this?
If its a plastic tank put a sheet metal screw in it. If its a steel tank use a gas tank repair product. Even JB Weld will work.
What kind of mower? Drain the tank, and patch the leak with silicon. This will get you by for a while.
SILICONE will not work on gas. It will disolve.
JB Weld .
if it's plastic go to the hardware store and get some epoxy that doesn't require a lot of heat to set. that will take care of it. if it's metal jb should work. how big is the hole, rough guess.
Marine Epoxy works wonders, and you can repair your aluminum boat while you are at it. I have about eight yrs. on my Bobcat gas tank my catcher had knocked a hole in riding on the trailer.
Ive used silicon on both fuel lines and tanks and had success. Only a temporary fix, like I said.
