Were it mine, I'd ask around a little first. Radiator shops (to my surprise)
are often a good place to get a gas tank fixed, but do some checking around. I
would NOT fire up the MIG to do it, especially if there is the slightest
trace of fuel vapor in the tank, and there certainly will be. Gas tanks make
really good bombs if you don't do things exactly right.

I need to weld a crack in a steel gas tank. Tanks got old gas in it
right now. Is there any safe way to do this? I will be MIG welding the
crack. Drain the tank, fill it with water or what?
