Gas Tank problem

Hey i was driving tonight and the roads were a bit icy i just had got off work and i was turning the corner and the rear end came around and swung into someones yard that happen to have big rocks and it went underneath my gas tank and dented it in. So far i havent detected any leaks i was just wondering if it will be ok or should i start looking for a new tank. Please help me thank you

It should be fine, just keep an eye on it, you will have to check about dents in the fuel tank when it has to have its yearly roadworthy test, if you have these where you live. bascially you wont get as much fuel in as you did!!!

I know someone that had this happen to a classic car restoration. I think he eventually replaced that tank. I wish you good luck!
