Flex seal tape and glue may do the job.
From what I heard, the issue was the fuel line, not the tanks themselves. Normally around here, if a fuel tank pops a hole, toilet wax ring is the go-to. Its non reactive, and hazmat approved. Some flex seal tape will react with some fuels.
He ended up having to wait until they got the fuel pumped off and vacced off the ground. Dude sounded like he was an independant trucker, had no insurance, and therefore no plan on what to do if this happened (most truck companies have insurance/plans for this exact situation, it aint cheap and needs to be dealt with quickly). Thankfully the local agencies do. So hes going to end up with a massive bill and probably a ticket out of this.

Someone told me once that he heard a guy talking sweetly to his wife on his analog cell and then he hung up and immediately called his mistress for weekend planning.

See post #14 on the 1st page
definitely a classic cellphone call for sure. You used to hear calls like that too on HF Ship/Shore phone patches also. Though sometimes with the second mistress being another man some times. (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Heard on the local county fire dispatch for an EMS call for someone that needed help to know about their medicine and what to take.

Guess they had some confusion and sounds like a bad use of emergency medical service. Maybe they shouldn't be left alone.

"10-4 I understand at this time you're ready for me to start jacking off"

I was listening to fiber pulling crew when the spotter asked someone to jack the winch or cable or something. They got a few jokes out of that one :ROFLMAO:

Ambulance transporting a combative patient to the hospital, so police were riding along.
After the usual relay of patient info, the hospital asks, "Do you need "Dr. Strong" on arrival or is he being cooperative?".
The EMT responds, "I already have friends with guns, so however you want to handle it".
