YKYDAYJ when your otherwise strong running 4.2L drinks oil at an alarming rate, fouls only one spark plug(#4) into a ball of carbon, and blows no visible smoke on startup, acceleration, or deceleration.

You notice the perky neighbor girls give you an unwary glance - because the sparks from your angle grinder is raining sparks all over their purdy jk.

Take it out. Let it dry. Air out. Find the leak with a little gas. Then clean the area and weld it up. That's what I would do if there wasn't one anywhere near me and I could t afford to buy one or didn't want to buy a new one.

It can't be welded, it's a poly tank and the crack is about 6 inches long! I was thinking to use some Bondo fibreglass patching sets or some form of epoxy to seal it up but I'm not sure I trust that to hold.

on that long of a crack I would only attempt anything if it was on the top of tank. looks like you gotta pay international shipping on one or get a fuel cell

YKYDAYJ when you finish a repair, complete your test drive, and it dies pulling into the driveway.

You know you drive a YJ when,

Everything is an obstacle.

You cant sleep because you were on the Jeep forum reading how to's.

You cut down tree's just to run them over.

The exhuast falls off and you dont care because its loud and people look at your rig.

You spend more time with your rig than your wife/girlfriend.

You have an anniversary with your YJ, and remember it, and not your marrigae anniversary. (Not recommended.)
Just read this one and had to laugh because my wife bought it for me for our anniversary! LOL
