Sealant. Anything that's resistant to solvents otherwise it will just peel off again.

It's a bit of a tight squeeze, ideally the tank should come off for better access.

As Ash suggests anything that is fuel resisit will be fine, I done a couple now and to be honest just use a blunt kitchen knife or even a wall scrapper to fill the hole and make sure covered.  Get as much in there as you can and do it when the tank is pretty empty leave it to cure properly for say 24hr's or long dependant on outside temp's
