Ok I have a crack in my gas tank right where the two havles come together. Is there something I can put on it to fix it? I was thinking JB Weld glue. Since that is one of the toughest glues out there. Anyone have any other ideas....besides replacing the tank?

personally, a gas tank is not something id try to quick fix. there was worry when cars first came out that youd be riding around in a firebomb, but gas tanks have been designed to reduce that threat. a crack seriously compromises that design.

also, depending on what sealant you use, some are exothermic as they cure, meaning they release heat. how much and if it will ignite gas, im not sure, but its something to consider

+1, never try to repair a tank like that, replacement is the only option.

Weld it :) - but don't do it yourself. I saw dude cut the tank with the torch in junk yard.... needless to say the bang was awesome, the windows rattled in the office and the idiot was sitting on the ground stunned lol

well this is how to happened.....dont ask how in the h*** it happened bc i don't even know!!! I was driving down the road and i passed a truck coming in the other direction and as I passed it a ratchet strap fell out of his truck and needless to say it went underneath my truck and wrapped around my driveshaft. And you know that hard steel hook on the end of those straps????? well that acted like a hammer and beat the **** out of my tank and mufflers. The mufflers are still ok but the tank cracked!!!

Is it a hole or a crack? I have seen a hole fixed with a screw and a rubber washer last forever. You could even do a bolt with a nut and washer if you removed the tank. Would be a permanent fix!
