Does anyone know how to fix a pinhole leak in a gas tank? Or am I better off buying a new one?

Whenever I used to work in the welding industry, we would run Argon gas in to whatever flammable tank we were trying to weld to to keep it from igniting. This worked well for us.

I have allways heard people use water but fill it all the way up. If the tank is empty quick steel putty will work to get you by

Well guys, the scoop on the gas tank is... I had to buy a new one, filling up the tank with water did work but when the hole was welded a new one appeared. After about four holes my dad finally said screw it.
