Yes, some internet reading has suggested that the ethanol in gas is destructive to polyester.

If the leaks are at the seams I have used super glue in the seams (fuel even E-10 won't touch it).
Don't have to use much, just enough to cover the areas you think or find have pin holes.
Make sure the tank is clean and dry before using super glue and expect to see a little tiny bit come out the pin holes.
