Ive welded tanks in the past but you have to ensure its clear of any liquid fuel and vapours.
I did it by removing the sender unit and drying the interior of the tank with a vacuum cleaner on blow then washing it out with detergent drying it again then filling the tank with argon.

Problem is that welds corrode after a while, brazing is a better option but that can buckle the tank due to heat dispersal around the repair.
