Leaking B&S Gas Tanks on Quantum Engines

I am getting a bunch Lawn mowers with Leaking gas tanks. These are the plastic tanks on quantum B&S engines. I tried repairing one with JB weld that fix only lasted 3 weeks. Is there any glue or fix you have tried with success.

Since the tanks are most likely a form of polyethylene, I do not believe there exists an adhesive for them. You should check with B&S to find out if there is a recall on the tanks.

Briggs had a replacement program a few years back, but only if you took your mower to a dealer. In my case the dealer was going to charge $62 labor to replace the tank after they received a replacement tank from Briggs. I opted out and got a tank from a mower bone yard. I don't think Briggs ever fessed up to there being a problem with the tank.
