G'Day All, this one is for the WA guys.
I have just returned from two months in the Pilbara and need to get my sub tank repaired. It is leaking (a very slow drip) diesel from a very small split on a weld seam.
Can anyone recommend a repairer in Perth, where I could get the sub tank (70ltr Long Ranger) repaired by having the seam re welded.

It's either a re weld of the seam or a new sub tank.

keep check on your costs, it will most probally be cheaper to fit a new or s/h tank in as you have to go through all the process of removing it and re-fitting it and if welding up the old one it has to be washed and no trace of fuel left in it before anyone will touch it with a welder (there are other methods but all cost).... if a small leak and it is diesel i would leave it until you get home and pull it all out yourself and get a "mate" to do it .. dont try to "plug" it with all the off the shelf stuff as it may affect the sucess of the weld when they do it
Good luck anyway

He does all sorts of jobs depending how busy he is

I would also be in touch with Long Ranger,their tanks are not supposed to do this.

Ultimate 4wd (ex K&N) in Canning Vale build tanks so suspect they repair as well.
Make sure you give back more than you take

Had a repair done on a boat tank many years ago.The tank was de gassed[ Rentokill by Fremantle Wharf]and a certificate issued giving a safe working period for repair.It was tig welded by a local boatbuilder.
As long as you have a certificate stating it is clear of fuel fumes any welder should be able to repair it.
