There has to be a petrol resistant glue out there...somewhere...

I've just heat welded the leaks and used the spare material as a filer rod and it's not leaking any more This is the same method used to make the bladder, but I used a soldering iron

It will still need a patch over the top so I guess I'll look into that next....

PU glue? Wouldn't think so, as the material itself is PU.
