It’s taking up room and I don’t know if it has any value or worth repairing...

There is a shop somewhere in Socal that can repair them.

If you can find it, repair them, sell them or hold them and watch the WTB section.

I repaired the one on my daily S14 and its been good for a 3 to 4 months now. I blew out the Vents and replaced the gas cap to make sure it wasn't something plugged causing excessive gas pressure. I cut a V in the crack then fill it back in using extra plastic from the actual tank. Also applied JB weld over top of the repaired spot.

Tried patching one of my s14 fuel tanks when I first bought it, but it wouldn't hold under pressure. Ended up just installing a used fuel tank and scrapping the old one
