aside from a new tank, there are repairs u can use but you will need to drain the tank dry and some need you to patch it from both sides... aint it fun?

Depends where its leaking from but its unlikely.

Cheapest on the web is either SEL or Autovaux. There's a place near me who are cheaper but they don't mail order so you might have to nip over if its worth the while.

is more than likely leaking from the seam where the top an bottom join, so as a temporary measure onl fill up to half a tank and i won leak but a new tank is needed in the long run
