If its rusty I would replace the tank itself, otherwise the ORIGINAL JB weld works, the JB Quik does not. The tank needs to be empty and the area where the hole is needs to be dry and I would try to not drive the car for at least 12hrs.

I am not totally sure but I believe that Honda will warranty the gas tank for life, if the hole isn't caused by impact and is a corrosion-related issue. The labour may also be included.

If the warranty option doesn't pan out, eastwood makes a gas tank sealer. I can't vouch for it, haven't used it, and only know about it 'cause they sent me two bottles by mistake. Might work if the metal is solid except for the pinhole.

Keep an eye on it, if it didnt fully cure for some odd reason (like cold weather/moisture, not enough of the hardener)...It can start to leak, though Ive never had that happen from using the original JB weld.

Otherwise, Cool deal....

i dont mean to hijack this thread :eek:hwell: ...
but i had a hole in my tank ... and I patched it with JB Weld ...
it didnt smell for like ... 2 weeks ... but its starting to come back

do Hatchback tanks fit on CRX's?

or are they CRX exclusive?

I have a pin hole in the bottem of the tank what would be the best to fix it with?

I used JB-Weld and it seems to be holding on there and working fine. Thanks for all your input!
This is one of those things that you can temporarily fix, but get a new one down the road.
Since it is holding now, you have bought yourself some time but i would look to purchasing another tank soon.

^^^ The only 88-91 gas tank thats different is the one in the HF, its about 2-3 gallons less. Im not sure on the sedans though.
