Damage to the gas tank can bring a lot of trouble to any motorist, but a small hole in it is not yet a reason to contact a car service, and you can try to eliminate the breakdown on your own, even if the gas tank is metal. Where to start?
First, it is better to remove the gas tank and drain all the fuel from it. The removed gas tank is more thoughtful for repair, and the defect will be in your hand. To close up small holes, you can use a special cold metal welding, which can be purchased at any householder or building materials store.
A small piece of such welding is kneaded in the hands and turns into a plasticine mass, which is applied to the place of the defect, after which the gas tank is left in a place protected from precipitation for a while, so that the welding hardens hard.
However, a more reliable way to eliminate the problem will be welding. If you have appropriate skills, you can try to brew the gas tank yourself, but if they are not, it will be better to contact the masters.
If damage to the tank is serious, for example, it has completely rusted, then the best way out of this situation will be a complete replacement of the gas tank. You can buy a new or used gas tank, mount it yourself or entrust it to auto mechanics – the choice is yours, and the spaces for saving are quite large.
