    Unsure

    It seems to be at the top part of the tank and looks like it's either a small crack or around the seal of the tank.

    Any idea how much it's going to cost to get this repaired?

    Is your OH mechanically inclined?

    MY OH is not allowed to do any sort of DIY after last week's shower disaster.

    Just came back from the garage; 100 for a new tank and fitting of it. Not too bad.

    I suppose you would be better off paying for someone to fix the tank, if he's bad with his hands; however, are you mechanically inclined?

    Replace the nut that holds the wheel.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    I am. However, my belly does not fit under the car at the moment

    It is quite posh to have a fuel leak in these times.
    I suggest you leave it so.

    Congratulations on your first "extra unexpected mofo cost" of having a car, just a week after getting your license.

    Please do not weld hole shut with gas inside.
