Any smaller size tank or two that has the proper or close to correct size fuel line connections from a junk yard that you can hang underside securely or stick in the back somewhere and run longer lines to get you home and find what you need.
Shot? Lost 60gallons? That sucks!
Is there a whole in it? If it's drained and dry around the hole I have successfully patched an excavater oil pan that had a piece of 5/8" rebar stuck in it the next day by going to the local machine shop to get some steel shavings from there milling machine and mixing it in some liquid JB weld mixture and it has been holding for at least 10-yrs now. Just put a wire brush/emery cloth on the surrounding area and patch that thing. If it's a mechanic telling you the tank is shot and there's no whole then get another opinion cause you could have just ran low on fuel and started picking up 50-yrs worth of sludge in the bottom of the tank?
Change your filters and put enough fuel in it to get home then drop and clean your tank.
