It is part of the tank, but you don't necessarily need a new tank. A few options are.

1. Tap it out to a larger size.
2. Weld and retap.
3. Helicoil, kits run about $50 for the tap, install tool and 6 or so inserts.
4. 2 part epoxy, not the best fix going, but an option.

5. Look in clasifieds section for a used one
