The tank can be repaired using the same technique as used in the fabrication of the Vans RV series aircraft. You could even cut an inspection hole in the tank to make sure you are doing all of the corroded areas. Not that tough. Just some sheet aluminum, rivets and sealant will do the job. Not to mention the grunt work of R&R.
