Clean up the rust with rough paper.
JBweld 2110 metal fuel tank repair or Permatex Fuel Tank Repair Kit, 9101
Use the epoxy on top, cover every bit of surface area of the bracket to the tank.
After dried up, put some tank sealer INSIDE the top part where the bracket is.
POR-15 or whatever you choose.
Keep air pressure going through the tank vent to prevent from clogging.
The tank vent hose fitting is at the right rear..

If you can find SealAll

This will seal the bracket to the tank and provide a fuel safe seal, but I'm not sure it had the structural strength to hold things in place. I've used, and continue to use this stuff and it really is quite good stuff.

SealAll does work really well for gas tanks so that might remain an option then.
