Q: Q: Hole in gas tank

asked by on

I have a hole in my gas tank and all of my gas is leaking out.

It is never good to have a hole in the gas tank. The gas tank in your vehicle is plastic so it should only be replaced with a new tank. There are some tank repair kits available that would allow you to try and fix it, but a certified mechanic would need to replace the entire gas tank.
