I am breaking a 93 999 fire Uno which had a new tank and sender fitted a couple of years ago.
I have the invoice which was £444, ouch lucky it was not me.
Yours for £30 if you come and collect.
If your interested pm me I am based in Greenwich SE London.

I don't think you should attempt to seal the tank :)
Epoxy resin perhaps... but it is going to be hit-and-miss...

I've never seen a problem with a plastic fuel tank before, so I reckon second-hand is fine. Be gentle when removing the fuel level sender, however... My friend James has three broken ones...

Good news, I fixed a leak in the fuel line where it comes across the top edge of the fuel tank but could not see a leak on the tank so I went back for another mot and passed:D
The tank is not a plastic tank(Haynes lied again).I will keep an eye on the tank in case it does leak.
Thanks(y)

That was easier than replacing the tank, some of the Uno's did have metal tanks, I had to replace my daughters, a right b!!!h of a job.
