dont weld it cause it can snap plus you will have to grind the weld down and re thread it
personaly i would get an extractor set and drill a small hole into it and extract it like any shop would do trust me short cuts arent allways teh best as i have learned the hard way when i had a fuel tank hit the ground when i was driving i used a zip tie to hold the strap on an older car i used to have it worked great until winter came and the plastic got brittle andbroke
