Default Re: Patching a gas tank

Ditto, what Tinsmith said. I've used this method on two tanks in the last couple of years. Solder, applied correctly is the only permanant way to fix pin holes. The key is to get the area absolutely clean. I like Nokorode flux and 95/5 solder. I do use a torch but very very low heat; just enough to get the solder to flow. Don't use flux core solder.

Good luck, Joe. Let us know what happens.
