fuel tank leakage

My 146 fuel tank is oozing from it corner when in full level patrol. It wont come when the patrol is half or below. Are there any other ways except tank change? I am planning to put glue or sealant. Which glue is the best?
Please advise me! Thanks

Re: fuel tank leakage

On my '98 TS I had a fuel leak and it was one of the rubber grommets ... couldn't tell you which one as I paid my mechanic to fix it ...

... my TS has a plastic fuel tank, I presume your 146 has the same so I doubt that it would have developed a hole ...

If you're sure that it's definately a leak in the tank and you know where it is then I would definately use something specifically designed for the job rather than just a glue which may get dissolved by the petrol.

Have a look at the "Petro Patch" products in the following link...
