UPDATE... I did weld repair (soldering iron). The tank injected molded seem has a flange of extra material next to the crack. I melted that into the crack. Tested with water, seemed sealed. Put epoxy over as belt and suspenders. I let it sit two days. Put it together and it worked for awhile. Ran the generator for 30 minutes, then let it sit pm cardboard for two days, and got a dinner sized gas stain
The tank is back ordered. Manufacture shows back ordered with no expected date. I will buy a tank ($80) if I can get one. If not I will grind the epoxy out and re-melt it more aggressively. I was a little timid at my first attempt. I will take the tank back out and give the weld repair another try just for fun, but a new tank is the way to go (if when I can get one).
