I'd be more confident plastic welding it. Many good 2 part epoxies that would probably work fine , but fuel would always have me concerned. You know anyone in a body shop ?? A nitrogen welder would probably work the best.

I'm with Ed on this one, just replace the cell.

The man just asked about repairing it. Not Replacing it. Yes, That is the solution.

It is not! The solution is to buy a new fuel cell.
