I've heard of brave welders purging gas tanks to weld on them...I can't really imagine where the risk of an explosion would be worth buying a new tank or paying to have one fabricated.Cut a hole in the bottom of the gas tank... remove object... weld up hole. What could be easier?
Don't do this. My lawyer made me write this part.
In any case, I'm on team "just drop the tank, get whatever fell in, out." I don't know how many times I thought taking some easier-sounding approach to solving a problem to avoid what seemed like a big task, just went horribly wrong and I ended up having to do what I was avoiding anyways.
