Gas tank replacement estimate: 1998 Toyota RAV4

How much would it cost to replace my gas tank? The present one has a hole in it. :frowning:

We don’t know where you live and costs vary wildly across the country (and countries) so…

Try here:

Looking at RockAuto, the fuel tank itself is around $200. Adding in labor and any other parts (maybe a new fuel pump?), I’d figure the better part of $1000 myself.

The vehicle may not be worth that, but that’s not my call. Good luck.

Is it a metal or a plastic gas tank?

Its a metal one and straddles over the drive shaft.

What kind of a hole? I’ve repaired a metal tank years ago that had a small hole, it held for several years.

I have no idea where in the tank it is. The entire side is covered so I can’t find exactly where it is nor how big it is. :frowning:
