Hi there:

We need to know what type of vehicle has the ignition sensor error to give you some advice, but you should have a professional mechanic complete a check engine light inspection to determine which sensor is faulty and replace it. Second, in regards to patching your fuel cell; we don’t recommend that to be done. It’s best and safer to replace the fuel tank.
