You need to take extra care into using a stud gun on a fuel tank.
If yiou do not use caution, the tank could explode. Be sure that 100% of the fuel vapors are gone.
Also be careful in using the stud gun. You could end up putting pinholes in the tank.
It's advised to pressure check the tank once you are done.
