Others on the list b4 have observed how JB & gas don't go together.  Take it
to a shop (like John T. suggests) & then also consider lining the tank.  I
used one of the brand name liquid coatings (name escapes me right now), but
this seals any other pinholes, as well as, keeps any future rust scale &
crud from inside your tank from fouling up your fuel lines, filters & carb.
