Yeah.... sigh ... I'm on my second tank and it has started to crack also ....
My luck is slightly better than yours ... I got first tank replaced just before the end of warranty so 2nd tank should be free within two years ...

I've not heard of anyone that has attempted to repair the crack ...
The cross-section is thin and I can imagine the stresses being pretty large at times ...
full tank of gas and big air off a whoop-dee-doo....
I wonder if there would be any way to put a strap under the tank to take some load off the outer shell without having the thing look dorky? The tank is double-wall ... what's cracking is the outer shell ...
