I have done this on SPAD airplanes before with MDPE (Wall-Mart Poly Cutting Board). just light a piece of MDPE on fire and let the plastic drips fall on the hole you're trying to repair. make sure the tank is empty and the fuel lines are disconnected. burning drips will go out when the touch the tank but they will burn long enough to remove the oil and methanol and stick to the tank. a few drips will do the trick in no time. This is a field repair on a SPAD combat airplane also. I don't know about longevity on an airplane, but it will at least last for an entire season on a SPAD airplane. And if you don't know what a spad is go to http://www.spattothebone.com

I used auto/marine silicone rubber (RTV) on fuel leaks, and it has never failed me. The only thing you have to be sure of, is that the surface to be patched must be clean and free from oil.

I used some thick CA and it seemed to do the trick.
