    You probably need to be more specific about what you're thinking of doing.

    A buddy of mine wrecked a brand new GSX-R 600 racebike, put a hole in the engine the first time he ever went on the track with it! I patched it with JB Weld, and he raced the entire season with it that way. Not gas, but constant direct oil contact.

    There is some 2 part puttys that will withstand gas.The whip is Seal-All.It will seal gas on a dripping steel tank.We put a Spring thru the side of a tank on the suburban in Northern Michigan.A chunk of carbboard,and a tube of Seal-All,and we were good to go. The truck still has it on there. It's almost like Model car cement,Gas makes to colaulte hard. I've used iJB Weld on alot of things,As long as it's a clean,dry surface,once it's set,it is gas proof. What are you using it on like delagem said?

    JB weld is fairly good though. We patched my friends seadoo gas tank with it (around the filler neck) and it withstood the whole day of riding. Later that week we go a new gas tank put in, but for the time being it worked

    fyi

    jb weld is fully resitant to gasoline according to thete website.why??while building the second set of lonestars i needed to join two return lines to feed the center carb.got a plastic y fitting with a brass press end for the carb.the center carb doesn't run a pump and uses this fitting to supply fuel to the center carb(just like factory 40's)that way i can run those carbs on the virage with just 2 pulse lines.when i drilled the opening larger for the press fitting it doesn't fit tight like i wanted,so i used jb weld as a sealer,adhesive,bonding agent,whatever to hold it,i notched the brass part to give it a foot hold.i'm also planning to use one screw and flat washer as a back up to prevent it from blowing out just incase.worst case scenario would be a small leak but i've run it on the trailer and so far so good
