The cheap and easy fix is to cut some strips of an old inner tube to fit.
While the tank is
out, make sure you've cleaned the top portion really well. After it is clean,
use some sort
of undercoating or other rubber-type product to coat it. Most of the tank
problems stem from
water and junk sitting on top of the tank and rusting them out.
