i have a gas tank from a truck that i am wondering if i can actually make a planter out of it... i could use some advice on how to clean it and repurpose it without any danger to the environment or plants.

    When I was in college I had a small leak in the gas tank of my Honda...I took it to a shop where they drained it...used some type of "cleaner" then welded it. Obviously welding next to not a good mix so what ever they used worked. I would put a few phone calls out to some auto repair shops to see what the magic cleaner is.

    thank you KMS ... i did call a few repair shops and they told me to let the sun dry it out and then wash it with dawn dishsoap....then cut the top off and i can use it... thanks for the heads up...
