Sounds like a new tank is needed. Who can repair plastic tanks?

I doubt your wanting to go this route.. but I bought this for when I kept cracking the fenders on my ATV.


Ended up cheaper than buying new plastic.

That's a better price than a new tank Daryle. Is plastic welding hard? I can weld metal but never tried plastic.

It's alot easier than metal.. A basic/hobbyist plastic welder is just a cross between a hot glue gun and a soldering iron. You just determine what type of plastic you have based on the symbols that are usually on it. You then look up the symbol in a book that comes with the welder. It will tell you what plastic you are working with and then what plastic rod to use. You then just let the gun heatup and move it along the crack while smoothly pushing the rod through a hole in the tip of the gun. The rod is melted and comes out the bottom like hot caulk. The iron has a hot flat on the end that you just work back and forth across the bead until smooth and then sand. They have of course the $1,000 kits that the plastic is put in a canister that heats it and air pressure feeds it out and all that good stuff but a waste in my opinion unless your doing that for a living. Like bumber repair at a body shop.. Oh yeah, alot of those places do it if you don't want to buy a welder or a tank..Wow I talk to much!

Lol! I here ya. Just a thought. I bought a stick welder to start getting into welding. I think I'm doing something wrong because I weld for 10min and grind for 2hr! Lol..
