Small leaks on gas tank. How do I fix?

I have a few holes on my gas tank that have been patched with what looks like jb weld, however this is not the big issue. I have a new hole that has formed and I need a solution to fix it. Should I go ahead a use a sealer like Jb Weld, water weld, quickseal of some form that gas wont eat through?

I would ultimately like to get it welded but if i do that I will have them do the other holes that have already been patched and also have it cleaned and relined and even repainted. Does anyone know of a place or someone who can do some good gas tank welding and cleaning?

Please give suggestions on DIY cleaning and fixing the hole(s) or if you know where I could have it fixed?

May be that it's too rusted to repair, if you are indeed having that many holes develop.

Ok what I ended up doing was seal the hole with water weld. It is essentially a temporary fix until I figure out where I can get it cleaned and welded professionally of find a new tank.The inside of the tank is a bit more rusty than I thought. That has to be the culprit for new holes. The holes that were already patched were done by the previous owner. If I can find a tank that is fairly new or at least without dents or holes ill probably go that route. My bike isn't exactly a popular bike. Would anyone know of other tanks that would be compatible with an 92 xj600
