Re: Poulan 3450 gas leak

I think you will find the tank is molded of "PP" (polypropylene) plastic and not ABS plastic. Most solvents or glues do not work on it.

Plastic welding works. You need polypropylene plastic as a filler material. Some people have used string trimmer line as filler rod.

i will try to weld it first, near where it looks to be leaking from. Im wondering if these seams progressively get worse, where the seam widens outward, making it worse. I really like this saw, a guy gave it to me, with a broke pull cord and muffler, and **** gas lines. It fixed right up and ive been using it ever since. I would hate to swap out gas tanks though, looks like the handle is built in. hope i dont have to take the tank off to weld any other spots.
