This is what I used in the eighties to repair plastic tanks or add fittings.

***Be sure to wash out the tank with soap and water (removed from boat) and remove all possible traces of fuel !!!  (Sparks from your router could ignite the fumes)

Very cool CS, that vent hole their doing is WAY bigger than on my tank. Mine was only a 1/4 in, they did 15/16. Maybe that’s why I’m having problems filling my tank :shrug9:

So he’s basically melting those fittings on by the heat created by friction. I did notice when I opened up my vent a bit that the tank material is really soft like candle wax

Never seen it done with plastic but have seen friction stir welding on aluminum
