Fuel Tank Leak

If you know that the pin hole is not indicative of a more extensive deterioration of the tank and is in a location that can be watched over with care, perhaps the area surrounding the pin hole can be appropriately cleaned and sealed with JB Weld, MarineTex or one of the newer epoxy mixes on the market today. You''ll sure want to keep an eye on the repair and be alert for further breakdowns in other parts of the tank. A bilge full of fuel oil is not a fun thing to deal with and, if gasoline, I''d seriously consider having a professional take a look see and get his opinion.
