    IMO...the time and effort to remove the tank, clean it out for anything to be glued/epoxied/plastic welded....it be WAY cheaper just to buy a new one, especially for $33....

    use "the right stuff"

    Just make sure the area is clean and free of any residue, smear it on with your hand and make sure it gets into the crack, wait for it to dry before filling with water to test for leaks.
