I’ve got a small hole near the top of my gas tank; it’s letting out fumes but otherwise innocuous. I asked my mechanic about replacing it and he says (a) it’s no longer in production, (b) after-market places don’t stock it, and © calling around to all of the local recycling centers has yielded nothing. He says if I can get my hands on a tank he’s happy to replace it, but that he’s out of ideas.
Any advice? Are there national databases or a network of junkyards? Is it crazy to think of finding a junker many states away and having it shipped up here? (New England) Can we drop the tank and weld a patch on? Drop the tank and have another (custom!) made? Leave it be? (Will this cause me to fail emissions?)
