After a couple hours riding power dies after half throttle. if I shut machine off for 5 minutes it runs fine again. temperature runs between 130-140

Confirm that the tiny tiny hole on the gas cap vent is not plugged!!!
This is such a common failure and it has been know to crush the plastic fuel tanks. The pump pulls a vacuum on the tank and eventually the walls of the plastic tank are crushed opening up the seams of the welded plastic tank.

Of course the plugged vent doesn't matter after that since the fuel spills out from the fractures of the seams of the tank. No direct replacement tank available only one 1/2 the volume of the original. It takes a total disassemble to replace.

Gas leak on the seam of plastic gas tank

Looks like time for a new tank. There are methods for "welding plastic" you might take it to a Shop that repairs raditors and gas tanks. When you take it to the shop have as little gas in it as possible. SHOPS HATE IT WHEN THEY HAVE TO REMOVE 20 GALLONS OF GAS BEFORE REMOVING THE TANK. You might check with the dealer to see if this is a common problem if its not collision damage.

8 gal losing air, checked all connections, no leaking, where else to check ?

look for a small leak around the welded seams on the tank as well as all the welds on fittings. When there is air in the tank, shoot some soapy water on it like you were looking for a leak in a tire to find small leaks.

Fuel smell when turning no leaks

I had an 88 Supra that had a leaking fuel tank, at the halfway point up on the tank, at the weld seam. It used to only leak either when I filled the tank up or made sharp turns. Seeing that your car is also a late 80's Toyota, have your fuel tank checked out.

What does diagnostic code PO455

A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary.

Fuel tank leaking how to solve problem gas is not pouring out but is seeping through bottom of tank

I don't think you will have any luck sealing this from the outside.
Removing the tank (preferably empty), filling it with water and soldering all of the seams (if metal) or replacing it if of plastic.

This could be sloppy manufacturing showing up late, stress from being slammed underneath (is there signs of dents or scrapes?) or if metal, it might be rusting through which is pretty much a death sentence for it.
Pouring some (a cup or so) methanol, pure ethanol or a commercial product intended for that use, into your tank now and then will cause condensation to bond to the gasoline where it will pass though the system and out.
