clean the area very well to bare metal by what ever means necessary (wire brush and emery cloth) make a metal patch formed to match the contour of the tank and clean that also to bare metal , the metal patch then can be tinned and prepped with 50/50 solder with a torch, the tank will have to be tinned and prepped with solder using an electric solder iron prefferably at least a 600 watt iron, then place the patch on the area and heat it until it melts in . ruby flux is a good product for cleaning and tinning butter that is used is for radiator repair is a good product for tinning before the solder is used . if you dont have any of the necessary products or tools to do this repair its going to be a tough fix and do it correctly , solder irons of 600 watt are tough items to find unless your willing to shell out 300.00 for a new one .
