Default Kerosene tank sealer?

I have a torpedo Heater in the garage and I noticed at the end of the winter last year there is a very small/slow leak in the tank. I have not been able to find the leak, so is there anything I can apply tot he whole tank that will seal it?

I was looking at the por-15 site and they have stuff but the heater isnt even worth what they want for the kit, plus it is a small tank?

If I Sand the outside tank clean and find the leak/hole would JB-weld work or is there something better?

Thanks

Im going to look in to this red-kote or creem stuff, if I am at I might look for a small por-15 can?

I only use the heater once and awhile so I dont want to dump a lot of cash into it

Thanks for the help
