The dealer did the first service on it and now the plug is stripped, I don't want to bring it back to teh dealer do to the distance, what is a good permeant fix for it and could you run me though the steps. Thanks
Two options. 1st would be to pull the tank and have the bolt hole heli-coiled. Most automotive shops can do this for you. It's actually pretty common. Your second option is buy a used tank from someone in the parts section or spring for a aftermarket unit. The aftermarket tanks can be had for just shy of $200.00.
