Can leaky fuel tanks be repaired? If so, I'd like to find the leak before I take it to be repaired. How do I find leak?
The tank is out of the vehicle. I see some staining. I thought I'd fill it with water to see if I could find the leak.

Weld patching may fix this. Coloured water is good for testing and having the tank filled with pressurized air on top to force the coloured water out of the hole, or drop the empty tank into a wide basin full of water and submerge it slowly and observe for the bubbles coming out of the side.
