Default Sealing fuel tank question

My GT4 fuel tank leaks at the nipple that delivers fuel to the carb. It seems to be stripped at the tank. Is there any sealer or glue that is resistant to fuel I can repair it with? Its making a mess of the car. Thanks in advance for any advice.

it is risky to use any glue at the nipple... coz it might CLOG your nipple. You dont want that to happen do you? I think other than change with a new tank as being said by Tabushi or you can ask your LHS about the nipple spare part.
