I have a 1988 towncar that has a pin size hole in the gas tank. I bought J-B weld but the gas keeps it from sticking. Is there anything I can do besides taking off the gas tank?

Do you
have the same problem?

They do make gas tank repair kits.

Try a repair kit first. The knead up epoxy sticks work about 70 ercent of the time.
Use some sandpaper to clean and rough up the area around the hole then hold finger pressure on the repair for about 4 very loooong finger tiring minutes.
If this doesn't do it. Get a small metal screw and a rubber washer and screw it into the hole. Don't overtighten. Just mash the washer down about half way.
