Plastic fuel tank

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I had a mishap on the weekend and found out that I have a small crack in the seam of my 6 oz fuel tank. Is there a way of repairing this small leak around the seam?

I just tried epoxy and it easily let go.
Is there another way or should I not even try and fix it?

You might be lucky and successful with the flat tip of a soldering iron (not a gun - too much heat) used to smooth across the split and melt the plastic together. You stand a good chance if it's on a straight seam, poor chance if it's not.
But then again, this will be the first place to let go on the next incident so I would seriously be asking myself if it's worth trying to save the cost of a 6oz tank.
