Fuel tank micro cracks

Thank you all for the help. I’m in somewhat of a quandary. I’ve tried everything to fix the damn leaks to no success. Haven’t tried lining it yet as suggested.  One shop ”fixed” it to the tune of $900 and it started leaking again two weeks later. I still need to settle that account but that’s a different state.   Would just like to get a new tank but I do realize the 29 gallon tank is somewhat of a unicorn.  Argh!

I neglected to mention that a tank cleaning and lining can be a DIY project.   A bit too much for me.   Google gas tank cleaning and lining,  look on You Tube.   Several companys sell kits.

Yeah I saw a really good website that used KBS gas tank sealer for a vintage Chevy truck. Amazing results and seems lots of vintage car restorers use it. Of course I can't find it now but there are a couple of YouTube videos and it's very reasonable at 70 bucks for the whole kit. Totally worth a try. Says up to 25 gallons but site I saw sealed a 22 gallon and had lots left.
