It's gonna sit over winter with gas in it and see if it holds
Hey bud, unless you tig weld that, it'll always be in the back your mind
when and if it'd going to leak and when it dose you know he'll be out in the
middle of no where, bite the bullet and tig it really. Do short cold welds,
you can get pretty damn close to a painted surface and not harm it.

I was thinking a wet rag and as you stated slow small welds are probably the best bet.

I just don't have much faith in epoxy vs gasoline formulas.

Good thought.
David Redszus previously wrote: A few years ago, I tested two batches of Shell pump gasoline obtained from the same station but a week apart. The first sample contained 542 different compounds, the second only 484 different compounds. In addition, both blends contained a number of "unidentified" compounds. There is no such thing as pump gas; only pump gasolines of which there are very, very many.
