follow the steps for fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Drive until your gas tank is nearly empty, ideally until the fuel level is below the gas tank leak, if possible. You can determine this by routinely stopping and checking for oil leaks. If oil is still leaking, the gas tank is still filled above the leak. Use brake cleaner to clear 6 to 8 inches around the leak. Wear gloves and protective glasses while you work. Do not let your gas tank completely empty before you perform repairs.
    • 2 Use a scraper and sandpaper to remove road tar, rust or grime around the leak. Use brake cleaner on the area again and allow it to dry
    • 3 Remove the epoxy from its packaging, taking the same amount from both sticks. Mix the epoxy together, massaging it between your fingers until it is the same color.
    • 4 Form epoxy into a cone shape and push it into the hole or leaky area. Use a plastic spreader to smooth the remaining epoxy into place. Allow the epoxy to completely cure. If the leaking problem persists, take the car in for professional repairs.
