    I've been searching for a year at least. One mower shop said he can get the left side, but the left side is still usable. I thought about buying it just so I have it, but $140 plus shipping and tax puts it over $175. I don't have that kind of money for a "just in case" part .

    There was a change in the tanks depending on your seral number. This company has both your left and right side tanks in stock for both serial number changes. Hustler Mower Parts and their diagram will give you the correct part number.
    A google search of the part number will turn up other vendors that may be cheaper.

    If something (like alcohol gas) is eating holes in your fuel tank, you can be sure that other holes will appear after your repair, but your holes are so perfectly round. Is someone armed with an cordless drill and Swiss cheesing your tank?
    Good luck

    Good point. It might be worth researching and finding a shop in your area that does plastic welding regularly.

    Or could "somebody" have gotten a little over-enthusiastic when shooting barn skeet?

    I've used this stuff in a pinch before. Not the way I prefer to do things but it did work.

    I've been practicing on a 20 gallon bleach jug. It's much thicker but the same plastic. I'm guessing several hours to get it done but I'm not out anything if it doesn't work.
