Angle it so the bit you need to weld is right up at the top, fill it with water to as close as you can to where u need to weld, the fuel can't explode without any air to burn with, even if it does, it'll only be a little pop anyway.

Shouldnt be dangerous, as long as you angle it so that the air-pocket is as small as possible.

Is it worth sealing the tank while it's out? Last thing you wanna do is dislodge a bit of crud and end up with a blocked carb.
