Lots of documented cases... especially on the SP1's.

That was a Honda warranty issue that may still be claimed at the dealership.

I recently realized the leak aswell, I have a 00. let me know how the weld job goes, and take pics of the welded unit please.

Tank sealer,It worked on our 35 chevy pickup.Just clean tank out,take out fuel pump,put it in,shake it around,let dry,and put it back together.

I've used the JB weld and it only held for 6 months or so. I've also had the seams welded. It still leaked. I ended up using gas tank sealer. The 2 part stuff you can get at the parts store. I basically looks like JB weld but is specifically made for gas tank leaks.

Inside of the tank.You might be able to get it from a place that deals with old car resto's.Like Year one and so on.

The stuff I was talking about went on the outside of the tank, around the rear mount.
