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

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.

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