Buy my "as new" 2006 gas tank for a mere $60.00 plus shipping (petcock and cap not incl.)

This is why I use blue loctite to stop the corrosion from hapening.

I have used an air gun to spin the bolt/insert and pull so it melts its way out of the tank. You can then usually take the insert off the bolt and clean the corrosion out of the threads. Then re insert it and melt plastic material with a soldering gun. A hot glue gun may work also.
