One detail I recommend you do research on is the use of Sta-Bil in your fuel. stabil is formulated for regular non-ethanol fuels. maybe they make two different mixtures now. so if you were running ethanol fuels you need to use a stabilizer formulated for same. I use K100 made by Kinetic Fuel Technology....
Regarding your tank, error on the side of safety .... replace it.

check out this site, i get parts from Chris and he is a wealth of knowledge, he can probably rebuild your tank or make you a new one
storage is always a dangerous thing. things that stay in motion live long. use it or lose it mantra applies to automotive stuff.
use it or sell it ...

holes on the side of your tank are easy to repair
the critical interfaces are at the seams ... what lurks where you cannot see is the issue
i would have the tank professionally steam cleaned if convenient, probably a radiator shop can help or advise
then, if a down hole camera inspection shows intact seams, i would use the POR or similar ( i think there is a better one out there) and seal the inside of the tank
I did a POR on my katana 750 years ago and it worked out well
